Yeah, I'm gonna buy a gaming laptop & would like to know if it is worthwhile to pay an extra for the 1080p screen... :unsure:

I mean games already looked great on 16:9 before right? + I've heard & seen that what really makes a difference in game is if the video settings are set to high or ultra, while the resolution doesn't affect the end result that much.

If the upgrade would cost 150$, what would u guys say? Worth it?

Thx

which laptop?

I would save the money on the display. You can always go with an external monitor later on if you want a bigger display. But, having carried around large notebooks, smaller ends up being better. You would be better off spending money on the video card or an ssd.

Ok, if u havent already bought the laptop, i would recommend 1920•1080 resolution from personal experience. Not only do the graphics look better, it also adds more antialiasing like value to the game!
