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

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.")
