    There are no scaling issues because the hi-DPI laptops in M$ stores are all set to 200% by default, so same screen real estate as 100% scaling but finer picture. To me it's a waste, I'm no longer impressed by pixels I can't see without a magnifying glass and I'd rather have better battery life instead.

    8k in a laptop is overkill and a gimmick. 8k tvs and maybe LARGE pc monitors make sense.

    While 4k is really awesome for many things including gaming the issue is when you change the scale to a comfortable viewing changes per person even steam, origin, cog and other programs and the text my god look so terrible.

    Things I'm waiting for before my next panel upgrade :

    -4k 120hz
    -Single GPU's able to power it
    Or
    - SLI/CF frametime / Scaling improvement

    - Nvidia to support the less* polished Displayport freesync standand

    Or

    - Panels supporting both technologies, thus not locking me in to any brand.

    What did you look at as far as scaling? Stock Windows stuff? Any third party apps? Did you change the scaling option to 150%? 200%? Load up a game or two? Stock scaling in Windows with Windows stuff will look fine. It's everything else that has issues.

    I saw the Arorus X5 and Gigabyte P35W with 3K displays... Sure picture looks crisp but that murdered my eyes.. I'm more then happy with 1080p on 17.3"

    I didn't look at which scaling option they had. I was on 200 or 250 Judging by what i remember on the size of everything. Didn't see any games, just web browsed 4k game screen shots and they looked awesome. I know adobe creative apps have horrible scaling. When I went from my 768p laptop screen to a 1080p screen, everything in adobe premiere got smaller. I'm afraid of how it would look on a 4k screen. I have cs5.5. They apparently fixed it in the newest 2015 adobe CC, but I don't have the money for that upgrade

    I have a 4K external screen, I only was impressed with actual 4K content. anything else does not look better at all compared to my 1080 screen. Also, windows 10 scaling is terrible. Even on my screen at native res and 100% scaling, looks blurry in some icons and stuff. It is weird. windows 8 looks better in this regard, both in 4K and 2K.
