This one seems right for normal usage ?
@getready Help plis.
Will get roughly 4k cashback on this

Yes, looks good
~60k is the regular price for over 3 months. You’re saving 6K

Screen seems to be good w/ 300 nits brightness, not color accurate and IPS screens aren’t that vibrant
+ Its a compact laptop and the RAM is soldered to MB . .so its gonna be Max 8GB RAM

The glossy or matte finish decide whether the display ll be vibrant or not. Glossy implies vibrant. OLEDs ll not be available at this price point.

IPS panels are more color accurate and have wide viewing angles but lack high contrast ratio as VA panels (more vibrant, better blacks and contrast but narrow viewing angles)
The latest VA panels* are also close to IPS panels in terms of “Color Accuracy” too

Given the scope of finding a laptop in this budget, one will get 3 options IPS, va and tn, with va provided by dell only, it’s rather more accurate to differentiate between glossy n matte displays, as tn displays are not a choice anymore.

And Apple Pro XDR display itself is an IPS display, https://appleinsider.com/inside/pro-displ...dr. And its one of the best displays available out there. https://www.apple.com/in/pro-display-xdr/specs/... it’s vibrant, color accurate n has deep contrast.

It actually depends upon, who is manufacturing the display, the budget etc.

It depends on the Quality & additional technology any manufacturer adds to the display panels.

Just because, Pro Display XDR uses an IPS panel + 5/6 additional components to make the display look better/vibrant (+ achieve 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio) doesn’t make the basic IPS panel w/ only 1000:1 CR (which is.. in this case + only 45% NTSC) any more vibrant!

Feel free to differentiate between glossy and matte display ( Again, the personal liking depends on whether someone prefers slightly better color or a Non-Reflective panel ) , when you’re comparing two laptops with IPS displays. Of course, u can do whatever u want when u make a standalone comment!

Every IPS panel has some sort of intermediate hardware. Even the basic ones. Take the filter covering the display, entire display turns white

IPS panels can be engineered to perform better. So, just saying IPS panels don’t look vibrant enough is absolutely wrong. There is no way one can make a 45%, 300 nit, 1000 contrast totting display to make color accurate, no matter what filter one uses. In the end consumer will go n buy the one, which have better hardware.

There are not enough choices. Only dell have va panels.

Jot down suggestions, who have better hardware at this price range. Underpowered ones won’t cut it. MSI, MI, Huawei have em. People are reluctant to go with em.

Follow the same logic and apply to TN panels (Something you wanna ignore because they aren’t worth consideration)
Just because, majority of the laptop manufacturers don’t use decent quality TN panels doesn’t mean they are not good enough. There are only limited number of laptops with good TN panels (+ they have better response time and refresh rates )

The intermediate hardware is linked to price of the product. You consider a 60k laptop and u don’t expect someone to invest 100K on just a display panel. IPS Panels aren’t vibrant enough compared to the other technologies like VA/TN and it is fact and whatever intermediate hardware these brands use on a ~50K laptop.. its not good enough to make the displays look vibrant enough and “NO” the usage of “Glossy/Matte” screens won’t make a significant difference if the panel quality itself is average/good.

Facts cannot be argued with an assumed reasoning. If you wanna talk about generic display technologies, create a D&D thread about it.. better don’t divert a hot deal thread about laptops/deals with unnecessary discussion based on assumptions/perceptions!

Buddy, then don’t make a generic statement that IPS panels lack vibrancy. Facts can’t be assumed by generic reasoning. And relevance of facts also matter.

The statement can be rephrased as, the panel used in this laptop is not vibrant enough.

And I generally tend to practice what I preach. 🐒🐒🐒

@getready @bikidas2060 this is hot deals section not your personal chats windows. It was ok till you are discussing on the technical/hardware related but going against eachother wont be taken easy. Take this as reminder to keep ur discussions limited and up to the point and not on eachother.
