Sub-1k€ Win64 laptop with 17" IPS or other wide-gamut panel?
Mar 26, 2014

Is there such a thing as a sub-1k€ Win64 laptop with 17" IPS (or other wide-gamut) panel these days?

Intended for the living room and home photo processing in Lightroom. Expectations: Win64, Intel Core i5 or better, at least 4GB+empty slot, disk at least 750Gb (space for an SSD desired), DVD, silent. Size, weight, battery, gaming performance don't count.

I got bad experience with TN panels. Calibration does not make it right: improves colours within gamut, but LR can't live without colour management, which makes images out of display gamut (but not really blown) look ugly. Calibration also tends to cause more posterisation issues, due to the prevailing 6-bits-per-channel. And I wouldn't like to use an external monitor there.
