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).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
