elementary OS: One Week In

I have the same Dell XPS 9360 with the QHD+ Screen, with Elementary OS of course. Long story short, I couldn’t bare with the low FPS I was getting from the UI. Even worst, google chrome and Electron based apps felt quite slow compared to my old computers. I like to feel the computer is light and responsive, since I spend most of my days using it.

I ended up getting a retina MacBook Pro 15, which felt the same on macOS… I installed Elementary OS, and after a few tweaks I was able to feel comfortably with it…

I really love HiDPI Screens, but I think integrated intel GPUs aren’t ready for a neat experience. Any laptop with a 1080 screen feels more responsive (no frame drops, or delays switching between chrome tabs).
