Core i3-330M Good enough for 1080P?

Hey duders,

Will this laptop play 1080p content without skipping? I'm specifically referring to 1080p mkv files, and 1080i/p uncompressed video from an HD video camera.

I want to be able to hook this laptop up to my HDTV and play 1080p content. Thanks broskis.

  1. Yes it should be fine although your screen size is 1366 x 768. I'm too sure about laptops since I have never done this but I don't know if you can output more than your native screen resolution on your laptop.
  2. Werxen's right, it'll handle 1080p video but your monitor resolution is too small. I tried hooking up my my 1080p monitor to my laptop which has a resolution of 1366 x 768, and the maximum resolution was still 1366 x768, IIRC.

    So long as the external monitor is set as an seperate display, and not a duplicate display you will be able to run both monitors at diffrent resoloutions. You can change these settings in Windows easily.

    However that laptop has no HDMI, and only Stereo sound output. So you can kiss goodbye to the 5.1 sound on those blu-rays. that pretty much makes the laptop unsuitable. Would do for me anyway

    Even my GMA4500hd integrated gpu laptop can play 1080p fine.
