I am in the market for a 15" laptop but many cheaper ones seem to be 1366x768, which is simply too low.

 

What's the next common resolution up for a laptop?

Isn't it 1600 * 900 from memory?

 

Why don't you get a 1920 * 1080 15" laptop?

I think you are kind of screwed. Everything is either standardized to 1080p or 1366x768 now AFAIK. It use to be that you could find other resolutions commonly, but a quick check (of amazon) suggests that is no longer the case.

UXGA (1600x1200) or WUXGA (1920x1200), i would guess; but looks like for compatibility 1900x1080 (FHD) is the norm. Check the Dell Inspiron 17 7000, for example: http://www.dell.com/...nspiron-15-7537

 

edit: gee looks like people are crazy fast answering on Neowin!

Prices start at £750, which is way more than I'm wanting to spend, and they don't even have dedicated video chips until you start paying £800+.
