    I am using a Dell Studio 17 laptop that has a 256MB ATI Mobility RADEON HD 3650. When I look at the resolution settings the maximum offered is 1440 x 900. I want to buy a monitor that is larger than my laptop screen with better viewing angles etc for editing images more accurately. Because the maximum resolution offered on my laptop is currently 1440 x 900 does this mean that it is pointless paying for a monitor with better resolution ie the Dell s2309w 23" widescreen HD monitor which is better than full 1080 HD or will a higher resolution be offered to me if the drivers for the new monitor are installed? Sorry but I am not knowledgeable at all in this area and any tecchys with advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers, Paul.

    Don't worry. You are just seeing the numbers for you laptop screen. If you plug in an external monitor you will see appropriate resolutions offered for that.
