I just bought a new laptop that has 1366x768 screen resolution. I was going to buy a 22" lcd on sale along with it but the sales guy said that the picture would not look good and that I should get a 19" max size.
On the lap screen, it's kind of odd, very wide and narrow. I'm used to an old-fashioned 19" tv monitor-type screen.
What is the best type of lcd display for this resolution?
Could I get good res on a larger than 19" LCD?
I wanted a 22-24".
You can use any monitor. Just set the laptop to exclusively use the external monitor. However laptop graphics cards are much weaker then their desktop counterparts.
It won't look blurry at all. I hook up my laptop via hdmi to my big screen LCD all the time for watching netflix and movies. Running games outside the monitor's native resolution isn't the end of the world and doesn't look THAT BAD.
drop your settings to 1280 x 720? or something close enough to it so that the image blur is nonexistent?my laptop has 1920x1200 resolution, but cannot play games on that res; and has DVI out only.

Recently there was a sale of a 24" 3d monitor from sony with a pair of glasses and a ps3 game, a coworker got it for 150, I think it now goes for 180 - 200 but discounted from over 400, so not bad, its 1080p though, i still think that scaling is a non issue having the same aspect ratio and with the scaling algorithms in current displays.
