Article: “Laptop LCD Roundup: Road Warriors Deserve Better”

MSI S271Anandtech has put together an interesting article about the state of LCD displays and laptops, using the MSI S271, a 12.1-inch laptop powered by a dual-core AMD Turion 64 X2 CPU.

It’s kind of an interesting comparison/article, using the MSI S271 alongside the 14.1-inch ASUS A8Js and the 17-inch ASUS G2P and Dell XPS M1710. The MSI S271 has a 1280×800 resolution, which is why it was included in the comparison (the others have 1440×900 and 1920×1200 resolution.

The main point of the article is how laptop LCDs are stacking up against desktop LCDs:

They are expected when we consider that using only our naked eyes, we can clearly see that all of the displays provide a less desirable image than just about any desktop LCD we have used in recent years. The surprising aspect is just how bad many of the displays scored, particularly in terms of color accuracy. While there are almost certainly other laptops that have LCD panels that can rival the ASUS G2P, there are plenty of others that more likely than not rate about as high as the ASUS A8Js. We’re also more than a little shocked that ASUS managed to provide both the best and worst display experience of this roundup, which goes to prove that there’s far more to this than simply choosing a reputable manufacturer.
