View Full Version : Question about the display of G55 and G75

06-07-2012, 05:17 PM

I think i'm going to buy a new laptop, but i don't know yet if I should take the g75 or the g55.
My main question i about the display.

I would like to know if all the g75 and g55 series have a FULL HD display, or if this is only available with the most expensive one.
I ask 'cause, for the laptop i saw, the G55 has 1366 x 768 for max resolution, and the g75 has 1600 x 900 for max resolution, and I don't understand why it's not 1920 x 1080.

And if they're all Full HD, is it possible to force the resolution to 1920 x 1080 ? (even if the supplier says that the max resolution is 1366 x 768 or 1600 x 900).

Thx for your help !

Native resolution is determined by the number of pixels in the display. "Full HD" is 1920x1080. "HD+" is 1600x900. You cannot 'force' 1920x1080 resolution on displays that are not natively Full HD.

ok thx for the answer :) And i guess i can neither 'force' the max 1366 * 768 to 1600 * 900?

That's correct - the maximum resolution of a display is limited by the number of pixels (picture elements) in that display. No display can run at a resolution higher than its native resolution.

... and the g75 has 1600 x 900 for max resolution, and I don't understand why it's not 1920 x 1080.

Some of the G75 models are ( lower resolution ) 1600 x 900 but ( most ? ) are 1920 x 1080 ...

You have to be careful and make sure of the specifications of the model you are buying.

For some reason someone has reported that ( in texas ? not sure where else ) best buy has 1600 x 900 versions of the G75VW BBK5 while it seems like they are 1920 x 1080 ( most everywhere else ). That seems kind of weird ( very weird ) ... but anyway ... caveat emptor ( buyer beware ) ... check it out!
