that resolution is fine for the size of the screen. The graphics card in that laptop will not run games very well at higher res than that. if the screen res were 1080p on that small screen you wouldnt be able to see anything as it would all be too small. you wouldnt be able to read how much health you have left in a game without a magnifying glass. If you want to play games, dont toy around with laptops, get a desktop.
I know resolution is a big strain of the graphics..but I just wanted to make sure. This gpu along with cpu will play everything I throw at it smooth on high settings right?
