Hi, i have been wondering if the native resolution of a laptop affects the gaming performace, let's say a laptop with the same specs but different only in resolution, will the fps between those two laptops different?
Also, im looking to buy alienware m17x with dual ati 5870 with 1400x900 res, or asus g73 with single ati 5870 with 1900x1020 res. I dont mind the money but i want to know what laptop performs better.
If you only want performance, the alienware would be better, but battery life and probably weight will be less. I think the 1400 screen on a 17" monitor is pretty good, a 1900 one will not that much better and the icons/text will be a bit too small for that size screen. That's just my opinion though.
