    Pretty sure it's the same screen as found in the P35X; if so, yes it is amazing - I have seen it for myself.

    My P650SG arrived yesterday from PC Specialist. I went for the 3K screen option and it is of course exactly like the pictures posted by kingyr. PCS set their pre-installed copy of Windows 8.1 to 200% DPI scaling - when going to 100% scaling everything looked microscopic, as you'd expect. A 4K panel would be a sight to behold in a laptop this small.

    One thing that doesn't seem to be mentioned so far though is that the lid and screen assembly is very thin compared to more traditional panels... and as a result the screen flexes quite noticeably when you open and close the laptop. Hopefully that won't cause problems in the longer term, I'm not used to seeing LCD panels flexing!

    Compared to my old P170HM (2nd-gen Core i7, GeForce 560M) this machine absolutely flies - it was doing an effortless 60fps in Heaven at 1920x1080 in ultra mode. I'll give it a more thorough testing this weekend, but initial impressions are that it's remarkably speedy for a laptop. Of course, having a decent SSD and UEFI booting does wonders too.

    Out of interest, has anyone gone for the 4K Samsung panel? I'd be interested to see whether it is indeed locked to 48Hz as the panel specs would suggest...

    I would guess that anyone who reads this thread has avoided the Samsung 4K panel like the plague.

    I've gone for 4K panel. Challenge accepted! It'll be 60Hz I'm sure of it :)

    I've already got a little problem with my Windows 8.1 install that is driving me crazy. And yes, it's a genuine copy ;) Maybe someone has an idea of what's going on?

    Here's the problem:

    I noticed early this morning after installing drivers and programs that my date was set to 11/12/2014 instead of 10/12/2014, so I changed it. A while later, I noticed that I couldn't connect to any https websites with Firefox or Internet Explorer because of certificate errors. If I set the date back to 11/12 in Windows, immediately there are no more errors.

    I checked the date in the BIOS and it corresponds to whatever I have in Windows (it's not resetting when I restart either, so no CMOS battery problem it would seem). Even when I set it to 10/12/2014 in the BIOS, I still get the certificate errors. Anyone have any idea of how to fix this? I would prefer not to have to have my computer clock a full day ahead.

    EDIT: Had another problem, looks like it was just Win 8.1 fast startup, which I didn't know about.

    That's weird, you'd expect browsers to be able to deal with that easily considering the differences in date formats either side of the pond (with the Americans doing dd/mm backwards ;)). Have you tried deleting cookies?

    The same is true for my P505, but honestly, I wouldn't even have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it and it doesn't bug me at all.

    No luck with deleting cookies :/ It seems to be a problem across all browsers: Chrome, Firefox and IE. And I only just installed Chrome to test it out, so there's no cookies to speak of there.

    I
    I did not have this problem. Have you checked the timezone ? You could also try to disable the internet-time-synchronisation in Windows-clock-settings.

    Sorry, it doesn't state the connector type...
