    Default Gigabyte P34G

    True. 900p is good for 14". Not sure if it kills the deal for me though. My current machine has a 7850m and 1080p on 17" and gaming is OK. I just need something small now as my job changed. Sick of carrying it's fat butt around.

    Not that I care, but do you know..

The other option is to tell windows to run at 1600x900, which will make everything just a little bit blurred yes but on the other hand the resolutions you're dealing with are much bigger than 1366x768, like double the number of pixels so the effect should be less noticeable, it also helps that the screen is small.

    Assuming here you're using a laptop and it's got a 15" display (yeah big guesses I know, but we've got practically no information about your setup to go on here), to simulate how sharp the new screen is at native resolution, measure the distance from your eyes to your display... now sit twice as far away, so if there's currently 25 inches between your eyeballs and the display, sit 50 inches away. That's roughly how sharp the 1080p monitor will appear (very very roughly, I'm waving a measuring tape and some maths around here in an attempt to work out a way to convince you)

    The point I'm trying to get across here is don't be afraid, just get the 1080p display unless you really can't afford it (in which case save up some more). It really is pretty fantastic, and even if you want to run things at a lower resolution they'll look *far, far* better due to having a greater colour range, brightness, etc. etc. though things will be ever so slightly (not noticeably) more blurry.

    I appreciate the info. I has been a long time since I have looked into running a monitor at non-native resolutions. I guess it may not be as bad as I thought.

    Still wish this thing would release already....

    Thanks for the info. I would still prefer to get a 900p display though. 1080p is uncomfortable for me on a 14-inch screen. Yes, you can run things at a lower resolution, and supposedly it doesn't look too bad, but what's the point of having a 1080p display if you're going to run it in 900p only anyway? Besides, I don't think scaled 900p will look any better than native 900p. The benefits of better brightness and color range will be ruined by blur.

    Anyway...I really hope they don't cut the 900p option. BUT if the 999$ model has both GTX 760M and 1080p, I will not hold back

    Well specs say FHD screen is AHVA LCD which is equivalent of IPS screen. That alone overweights 900p screen with regular LCD. I'm very interested now to see how that panel performs.

    A Gigabyte representative from Taiwan HQ confirmed to me that P34G will be coming with Full HD (no 900p version).

    You can check the performance here:
    Test Alienware 14 Notebook - Notebookcheck.com Tests

    It's surely the same AUO panel.

    How do you know? if it's the only AHVA 14'' 1080p then it's probably the same as clevo w740su right?

    Well, of course I do not know for sure. It's just: I haven't seen any other FHD 14" screen besides this one. Did you?
    And yes, I think it is the same one which the Clevo w740su uses.

    Well me neither, but I'm no expert at all. Besides, I think this is the second review that mentions the panel on a 14'' AHVA screen.
