Hey, Im looking at buying a laptop with a screen resolution of 1366x768.
One of the reasons I'm buying this laptop is that it has blu-ray and I want to be able to plug into my lounge TV which is 1080p and what blu-ray movies in full HD.

I don't think the laptop screen resolution would have any effect on what the graphics card can produce but just in case I thought I had better ask :)

Cheers

The Laptops screen resolution has VERY little impact on what the graphics card can output.


Just make sure the CPU can handle decoding 1080p Bluray's

Should be good then, you will obvuiously not be able to use clone mode etc since the resolutions will be different.

should be able to.  you might have trouble running 1080p content at that res with the wrong graphics hardware though.  my lenovo t510 has 1690x900 screen and can run dual 1920x1080 screens no problem on its intel integrated graphics but i havent tried 1080p video yet

Double check the specs of the graphics chipset that is used on the laptop imo.

It would be quite a fail if the laptop's video card isn't good enough to output 1080p since it has a blu-ray drive built-in as standard:) We shall see though!

They sell 4 gigs ram, 1 gig video card systems with 32 bit windows, so just because its included dont expect it to be useful ;)

in saying that, what gfx chispet now cant do 1080p h264 in hardware? Even intel onboard stuff will work, so I expect it will work.
