Max External Screen Resolution

Discussion in 'Computing' started by The Old Bloke, Jan 9, 2015.

  1. I have used desktop PCs since 1985, and they have served me well. But
    it appears that I may have to live in a much smaller space.

    My preference has always been for large screens and I am lucky to have
    a 30" Dell 2560 X 1600

    I would like to buy a notebook to replace my desktop, but I can never
    find what max resolution a notebook may support. A year ago I was
    sold a notebook which was said to support very high resolution
    screens. It didn't and I returned it.

    Even if I find what video card the notebook has, often the notebook
    maker has often had the video card "down rated" for many reasons eg

    Does anyone kow of a hardware testing site that reveals the max
    resolution for an external screen?

    If it's not portability the "ALL IN ONE" PC takes up little space.
    Pricing is a lot better than Laptop
    Touch screens are fair bit dearer
    The only curse is a new one will have "WIN 8.1"

    My ALDI one cost 23" screen cost $599 seems adequate but only 4Gb RAM
    needs more

    This one with everything asking $1400
    Check out officeworks, dicksmith etc,
    HEALTHY CHIPS (1 serving)
    Enough KALE chopped chip size to line large dinner plate
    Toss together with extra virgin olive (about desert spoon poured over)
    Line plate single layer with chip sized Kale, lightly salt (iodised)
    3 minutes in 1000 watt microwave
    Should then be crispy and ready to eat with drink (Beer)

    Surely replacing the desktop with a notebook isnt
    going to save a lot of space given a screen that big ?
    Can't say I have ever noticed one.

  5. Thanks for the feedback.

    I didn't expand why I wanted a laptop. There are other reasons besides
    the size. Portability is one reason
