Hi, most windows laptops these days have either FHD or 4K display. Any users who have been using rMBP 15" for a long time and moved to Windows laptop with 15" FHD screen? Do you find the lower resolutions, especially in vertical aspect, affect your work in a negative way?

affect your work in a negative way?
I went from a 2012 rMBP to a Razer (back to a 2018 rMBP) and I was a bit surprised at the adjustment I had to overcome. It wasn't a bad display but your eyes (brain?) does get used to the higher resolution, but over the course of a few hours your eye readjust. It wasn't a negative, but I think if I were to get another windows machine it will be 4k and I'd skip the FHD resolution altogether.
