Is 1920 x 1080 a good resolution for a 15.6" laptop?

The screen is 15.6", and it comes with 1920x1080 laptop. I usually used a 15.6" laptop but with resolution 1366x768. Will it be too much change? Is it a right resolution?

  1. Depends on what you use your laptop for and how strong your gpu is
  2. OK. It is a NVIDIA 650M, and I'd be using it for gaming and normal use (watch videos, surf the internet...), nothing like photo editing or something like that.
  3. My next laptop will have a 1080p screen. I find that the 1366x768 resolution screen on my Lenovo Y470 to be a bit too restrictive when I do multitasking because I switch around a lot between different programs / windows. Very easy to do on my 1920x1200 monitor, not so easy to do on my low resolution laptop.

    For games I find that 1366x768 is fine. I have no issues playing games at that resolution. Playing games at 1080p will be a huge strain on the GT 650m. If I had your laptop I would simply use it at 1080p on the desktop and for games I would either set the resolution to 1366x768 or 1600x900 depending on each individual game's performance.

    I have the 650M on my laptop with a 1366 x 768. I can play BF4 medium settings with 40-50 and sometimes 60 FPS. I wouldn't recommend a 1920 x 1080p display because even on a 1366 x 768 display the GPU still struggles with some games.
  5. Hmm... So the idea would be to use it only for normal tasks, and for games not use the native resolution?

    Yep. I like the "big workspace" for when I am simply using the laptop for everyday usage. Then drop the resolution to get better performance in games.
