    Really useful post, thanks. Hadn't thought about taking the laptop into a store and trying it out as you suggest.

    Have since found out that the laptop has one hdmi 1.4b port supporting up to 4k @30 Hz
    Try connecting it to a 4K TV/monitor while at the store too then.

    IIRC 30hz will be ok for mostly static work but anything more extensive than mouse movement will be borderline unusable depending how sentitive to movement issues you are.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

      I go all wooshy headed and nauseous at dodgy frame rates so, other than for streaming TV, I won't use a PC attached to a TV screen.

        That'll be the hypnotoad using interlaced frames.

          Just heard about these. Seem to have proper KVM functionality rather than software driven, like the Dell, which requires an install on all connected devices.

            For anyone thinking about the Dell monitor and its KVM function. You don't have to install Dell Display Manager on all connected devices. Just on one, ideally your primary device.

            Once it's installed, find the file ddm.exe and copy it to any device(s) you want to connect to the monitor.

            It runs without any installation and you get full KVM use. If you can set it to run on start up, that's most useful. I also found making sure I've set a shortcut key sequence to switch between inputs makes the process easier. There's about a 2 second delay while it switches
