Hope that the carrizo version offer a 1080p screen, hate to see the chip get nerfed.

Also, I don't have experience with a 4K latptop screen, but even at 17" is it even worth it? I don't imagine you could see a difference between 4K and 1440p at 17". A 1440p would save way more battery, but then again, marketing.

Not in my opinion. I have a 15" laptop with a 1080p screen, and it's more than good enough. And since scaling in Windows is terrible, even in 8.1, I leave it without any scaling, and I can't imagine the UI being any smaller. No personal experience with 4k on a 15" screen, but I've seen 1080p, 1440p, and 3k - all look like crap with Windows' scaling.

I'd love to see AMD laptops with 900p and 1080p screens. 1440 and 4k? Overkill in a laptop, imho, especially 4k. And seeing more AMD 2 in 1's would be great too.

I'd personally love a 1600 x 900 AMD FX Carrizo laptop. Good resolution, but better battery life and performance than 1080p.

I dunno, doesn't Carrizo have that fixed-function 4k video accelerator? Or am I mis-remembering that? Perhaps actual 4k video use is best left to plugging it into a large TV...

Can't find any of these for sale on their site - asked a customer support guy where I could find a laptop with an AMD Carrizo APU inside and he said they didn't have any of them. The only ones I've been able to find have low-end Kaveri stuff in them...

4k resolution on a 15" laptop is NOT overkill. It will result in 294 PPI, only slightly greater than the 2009-era Motorola Droid, which at 854x480 & 3.7" gave 265 PPI. The HTC One was 1920x1080 @ 4.7", giving 468 PPI - much closer to what we nowadays expect.

We should be pushing for AT LEAST 4k on 15" and above screens, and our 24" monitors should be no less than 8k. Come on guys, I expect more from the Elite PC Master Race, we are always light-years ahead!
