OLED TVs have been around for years , but OLED screen technology has been notably absent on laptops so far. Several laptop makers announced new models at CES 2019 that will come with OLED displays— the " holy grail " of display technology.

It has been called the Holy Grail of modern biology. Costing more than £2 billion, it is the most ambitious scientific project since At the least, these scientific advances may offer a way of screening parents who might be at risk of transmitting a single-gene defect to any children that they conceive.

Laptops with the 'holy grail' of screens are finally coming this year

OLED displays on laptops made a big comeback at CES 2019, where several new models sporting the superior display technology were announced.

OLED displays are superior to the regular LCD displays that most laptops use in several ways. For one, they produce a perfect black colour that doesn't look grey, like most LCD displays. That's because parts of the screen - individual pixels - will actually turn off when displaying a scene with the colour black, whereas an LCD display always has a backlight turned on behind the display itself.

Since OLED displays don't have backlight behind the display, they're also more power efficient than LCD displays. That translates to better battery life, which is something we've seen with smartphones that come with OLED displays over LCD displays.

One of the most notable laptops of CES 2019 was a prototype model of the new Razer Blade 15 that will come with a 15-inch OLED display. So far, the Razer Blade 15 with an OLED display is still in the works, but Razer said it's planning a 2019 release. There's no details surrounding its potential specs or price tag, either.

HP, Dell, and Lenovo also announced new laptops with OLED displays.

HP's new Spectre X360 15 is expected to become available in March 2019, with pricing details to be announced closer to launch.

The Holy Grail is the subject of numerous myths and legends, which makes it difficult for scholars to distinguish fact from fiction. The word “ grail ” probably comes from the Latin word gradale, which refers to a deep platter that foods were served on at medieval banquets.

Oculink, designed for external PCI Express graphics on notebooks and PCs, could give laptops the graphics punch they need for gaming after hours. And the best part? It’s almost here. The PCI Special Interest Group (PCI-SIG) has been quietly working on the Oculink cable for at least two years .

Dell is releasing three new laptops with OLED displays in March 2019, including a new XPS 15 model and two gaming models - the Alienware m15 and Dell G7.

Lenovo's new Yoga C730 will also sport an OLED screen when it's also released in March 2019.

Laptop makers have been reluctant to adopt OLED displays in the past, as they can easily drive up the cost of a laptop beyond what a buyer is willing to pay. Indeed, OLED displays are expensive for both the laptop maker and the buyer. Most TVs with OLED panels, for example, are significantly more expensive than those with traditional LCD displays.

But it appears at CES 2019 that the price of OLED technology has dropped to a manageable level. Still, while there's no pricing details for the models above, expect them to cost more than similarly-specced laptops with LCD displays.
