    Forget gaming. 4k resolutions are a boon for working with spreadsheets, charting software, writing projects, research and the like. I'd drop a few hundred on one right now if I could justify it.

    I think 4k will just make it easier to see the limitations in modern graphics. View distance and seeing edges is still a huge one.

Move through an area and you will notice that items and foliage will come in to view as you move closer.
