    Default Laptop screen

    To Laptop advisor

    I like to know whats the reason people does not opt for a screen resolution of 1400x1050 and they get a lower 1028x768 instead?

    Even for wide screen I noticed people gets the lower res one instead.

    What you guys think about high res screen and why the manufacturer are not marketing much of it?

    What is your prefer screen resolution?

    Doing this for sch marketing research.

    TIA
    Hope to hear your comments

    i cannot get the question as well..

    if you're not running your LCD's native resolution the graphics will be 'funny'...

    It all depend on your usage. If you are using mostly to surf internet, word processor, powerpoint etc, then 1024x768 is sufficient and cheaper. It is also resolution that all current projectors support.

    You will only need wide screen and/or higher resolution if you need bigger or wider desktop area especially for spreadsheet user.

    Let me rephrase the question,

    What will your preferred resolution be for a laptop? And why would you choose that?

    1024x768
    1400x1050
    1600x1200

    It only applies to normal screen. Like to hear your reason and views.

    this would mean extra cost... if you screen is just about 14", the gain in sharpness ain't very much notable unless you try to compare pixel to pixel...

    imho my 14.1" 1280x768 are sharp enough.

    Me getting old. So lugging around 14" or 15" bricks isn't that appealing a thought. Which is why I settled for a light 12" laptop, easier to bring around. So with 12" I get only 1024x768; if they'd only squeeze 1400x1050 I'd be a happy puppy
