An important feature that makes Apple’s new iPad and Mac Book Pro hot is that they both come with the most advanced Retina Display. The new iPad gets a high resolution of 2048x1536 pixels while the Mac Book Pro reaches even higher at 2880x1800 pixels on its 15.4-inch large screen. This has aroused quite a lot of interest from people, even those people who disfavors Apple products. Now, people would be able to have another choice of super high resolution screen display laptop, the Samsung Series WQHD Ultrabook, a 13-inch HD screen laptop introduced by Samsung on IFA 2012 trade show in Berlin with Retina-like display screen of 2560x1440 pixels.
If the Samsung Series 9 WQHD Ultrabook is with a 13.3-inch screen display, from the existing Series 9 laptops, the density of this Ultrabook would be roughly 220 pixels per inch, roughly the same pixel density as that of the 15.4-inch Mac Book Pro. Of course, Apple's laptop has considerable advantage of actually existing on the market today, while Samsung Series 9 WQHD Ultrabook was apparently just an engineering sample on display at IFA.
Samsung isn't saying anything about specs, pricing or release date. According to the report from Engadget, this 13-inch Series 9 WQHD Ultrabook beams Windows 8 on 2,560 x 1,440 display, making a visible leap beyond the existing Series 9 13-incher, which sticks to a more typical 1,600 x 900. Better still, the surface of the screen has a gentle matte finish, though it's unclear how that specifically enhances the viewing experience. As for the price, the current 13-inch Series 9 laptop already costs $1,200 and up, so you can imagine that an ultra-high-res screen would send that price even higher.
