I would recommend asking in the Photoshop or Lightroom forums. Also, rather than just providing an article that reviews it, maybe put into your post the exact specs of the machine you are looking to buy.
Sorry i wasn't more specific. I'm only concerned about the screen's viability. It's a 14" QHD 2560x1440 IPS Wide Viewing Angle Anti-Glare Display LCD. http://www.gigabyte.us/Laptop/AERO-14--GTX-970M-965M#sp
In spite of what the manufacturers claim, laptop displays are generally nowhere near the quality of a good desktop monitor. That's just a given, considering what it's squeezed into. You'd be hard pressed to find one with even decent uniformity, for one thing.
That said, IPS is vastly preferable over the standard TN panels usually found in laptops.
2560 pixels over 14 inches is a lot of pixels. Everything will be tiny unless scaled accordingly, and different applications may handle this in different ways. You should try this before you commit. In Photoshop, for instance, the image will display at less than half the size you're used to.
Thanks for the response. I Currently work on a 24.6" 1080p monitor and it works well, but I'll be on the road for three months and will absolutely have to use a laptop to do editing.
I'm going to give it a whirl, I can always return it if it's unworkable.
