Default Labtop Resolution question...

Hey guys, i asked earlier about hd dvd add on (microsoft) and how to view on PC and some of you helped out a great deal, thanks for the link.

I tried to google this info but couldnt get definete answer so if someone could help me out that would be great.

I just ordered a XPS labtop from dell about 2 days ago and i can cancel the order anytime for a full refund. I'll mainly use the labtop for work but why not watch hd movies. On the spec side, it says 13.3 HD display truelife 1280/800. It does come with NVida g force2 8800 128MB. If i was to hook up hd dvd add on to the labtop, would 1280/800 considered hd display???
On tv side, i know the resolution specs but how does pc/labtop display compare???

Thanks again guys

labtop? you mean laptop?

1280x800 is slightly higher than 720p - you might call it 800p. You'd be watching your movies in 720p, which on a 13.3 inch screen, would look marvelous.

Default Thanks

So in PC resolution, what is the specs for 1080i and 1080p???


Thanks again, you just made my day... i thought 1280/800 didnt even come close to 720p... 720p is doable for me

On a PC (or really any HDTV) - 1080i would be 1920x1080. 1080p would be the same resolution - you'd just need a card/drive that supported it.
