Why not a Fujitsu Lifebook U904?
Even better resolution than Mac (3200 x 1800 vs 2880x1800). The 14' format 
makes it much more easier to work while travelling. And no problems running FM!

Subject: Re: What is your experience with FM12 using the 5K Retina screen?

There are a number of people on this list (I believe) who have dealt with 
issues using FM12 on retina MacBook Pro laptops. I know it's not exactly the 
same thing, but it's well beyond the "compatible" resolution for FM. You might 
search the archives for "retina" or perhaps those people will chime in with 
their experiences.

Good luck!

Because of fading eyesight due to old age, I have been thinking about upgrading 
my hardware and software. I'd like to purchase a new iMac loaded with the 
Windows operating system, because of Apple's amazing brilliant precise 5K 
Retina monitor on which print appears so crisp, and then run FrameMaker 12 
under Windows on that iMac. However, when I contacted Adobe about whether it 
was possible to run FrameMaker 12 at full screen resolution on the 5K Retina 
monitor, they responded that -- despite the fact that the 5K Retina monitor has 
been being sold for some time now, they have yet to test this!

Apparently Adobe's attitude is that I would need to first pig-in-a-poke 
purchase the latest Apple hardware, and download and install their latest Adobe 
software, and then test for native screen resolution *myself*. --If it should 
turn out that FM12 won't run on the 5K Retina screen I had just purchased at 
full resolution, then I'm SOL, and shame on my eyes for getting old.

Question #1: Has anyone on this list succeeded in running FM12 at full screen 
resolution on a 5K Retina monitor? Or, has it been necessary to degrade the 
resolution of the screen in order to run FM12? Question #2: If it has been 
necessary to degrade the resolution of this monitor in order to run FM12, how 
does FM12 look on this monitor? --Is it superior in quality of image, crispness 
of print, etc., or is it inferior? Question #3: Should I instead purchase some 
other brand of monitor for the visually disabled, such as the latest hi-res 
big-screen monitor offered by Dell?

(This was Adobe's response: "The Compatible screen resolution is 1024x768 
screen resolution (1280x800 recommended) mentioned under 
http://www.adobe.com/products/framemaker/systemreqs.html. 5K Retina screen has 
not yet been tested with FrameMaker 12. We had tested 4K with FrameMaker 12 and 
were experiencing issues with the display and eventually had to adjust the 
display resolution. However, If you want you can install the trial version for 
FrameMaker 12 and check if it works fine with your display or not.")
