I am currently using a Labtop and intend to buy an external LCD monitor to connect my labtop for photo editing. Bigger screen is easier for photo editing and able to colaborate the color better. I know this is not the best option but I do not intend to buy a PC with proper graphic card for now.
My question is if I connect my laptop to a wide screen LCD monitor (e.g. 1680x1050 pixel), will the screen display properly? When I check on the Display property on my labtop, the max resolution is only 1024x768 pixel. Will the picture distorted?
I will really appreciate any input because I do not want to spend few hundred dollar to buy an expensive wide screen LCD and end up seeing an distorted picture.
