Acer Group is not exactly known for premium-class products as for many years the company has been focusing on mainstream products. However, it looks like this year the company will start to offer high-end features to customers, who demand the best possible technology. One of the first of such offerings will be displays with ultra-high resolutions and exceptional quality and clarity.

At the Consumer Electronics Show this week Acer demonstrated prototype laptops with retina-class IPS screens with 2880*1620 resolution, reports PC World web-site. Presently, Acer does not reveal which notebook models are set to offer displays with ultra-high resolutions, but the company indicated that the higher-resolution screens would be available on several different systems as a high-end option.

Acer is also looking forward to bring 23” and 27” displays with ultra-high resolutions and very high pixel density to the market this year, the web-site reports.

Apple was the first-to-market with retina-class notebooks last year, when it launched MacBook Pro 15” with 2880*1800 resolution and later followed up with MacBook Pro 13.3” with 2560*1600 resolution.

Finally concrete news on a desktop sized high-DPI monitor!

Too bad on the ratio on this notebook.

BTW, I hope sites can stop using Apple buzzword "retina" for what should be just called high-DPI.

Agree. X-bit labs should be a bit more professional than using Apple's buzzwords.

I want a 16/17" notebook with high res and IPS panel. I will be able to do photo and video on it! And 2 hard drive space too please
