What resolution?

Hi,

Just about to buy a new latop and decided to go for a 15.4" widescreen. I am settled on all the specs, with one exception - do I go for 1280x800 resolution or 1680x1050. The higher resolution costs an extra £50 or so.

The laptop will be mostly used for generaly business use, although playing dvd's and games till certainly be on the cards as well.

I generally dont like text to be too small (better for my eyes), so I am tending towards 1280x800.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for any pointers that you can provide.

  1. If you have a hard time reading small text go for the 1280x800, your eyes will thank you.

  2. I agree with Folken, lower res for text is a definite, but if your going to watch movies or play any games, consider the higher resolution, it makes a big difference. Remember, you can always set the res down when your working with text if you have the better system!
