So does 4k on a 15 or 17" laptop equate to more screen real-estate?
i'm tossing up getting a new 17" laptop to increase my productivity whilst drawing away from my desk, but i'm unsure if it actually beneficial to drawing ?
i did a quick comparison bewteen a macbook pro 4k and my current 15"1080p screen with the same file, and to me it didn't really looked like there was no gain? Most things are crisper on a 4k it seem though.
am i missing something ?
There is also the fact that driving a 4K screen will take more resources meaning lower performance, which may or may not be noticeable, and a shorter battery life which reduces portability. If you are using it as a desktop replacement portability is less of an issue, but you are better off buying an external monitor instead...

I have a 4K screen on my HP Studio G3 laptop (15inch) and drive it at 125% scaling (which equates to approx 3070x1728 pixels) not 200% scaling which is default as I want more real estate. For me a resolution of 1920x1080 is just not enough.
