Hey guys, I've been to stores all over the area and haven't been able to see a 1920x1080 resolution screen in the past week or so.
Do you guys think that is too high a resolution for such a small screen? My concern is that the text will end up too small to read easily, but I'm going to use it for multitasking (multiple pages of Word and/or Excel for example) so the extra screen space may be worth the trade-off.
Keep in mind that, while you can sometimes upgrade a 15.6" 1366x768 laptop with a higher resolution display, many laptops that come with 1366x768 displays come with single-channel LVDS cables. A dual-channel LVDS cable is necessary to run a higher resolution, and there isn't always one available that is compatible with the laptop. With so many laptop models and so few people willing to try things like this, there is almost no information available on this for a given laptop though.
the higher resolution does require a more powerful GPU
You can always run games in non-native resolution. And games running in non-native resolution on a 15.6" 1920x1080 display will often tend to look better than games running in native resolution on a 15.6" 1366x768 display, due to the sheer difference in quality that typically exists between these two types of displays.
