I have a question regarding how fonts render on a modern HiDPI computer screen.
I'm going to buy a new 15" Windows 10 laptop: the brand new Dell XPS 15 9560 (i7 cpu, 512gb ssd, 16gb ram and gtx 1050 dgpu). My only dilemma is about the display resolution options: FHD (1920x1080) or 4K (3840x2160)?
I read long articles and books on my laptop (pdf, epub and doc files; web pages) and I really, really love to see sharp and crisp typography and images on screen.
With the FHD display, I would set Windows scaling to 100%; with the 4k display to 200%. As a result, I will get the same screen estate with either option.
So my question is: will I see fonts and images more sharp and crisp on the 4k display scaled at 200%, comparing to FHD scaled at 100%? And if this is true, will the difference be really noticeable watching the screen at standard distance?
