If it is a laptop computer (and even if Desktop with LCD/LED display), it is best to use the native resolution (which appears 1920x1080 for you).

This resolution will give you more screen real estate which is valuable and you can always change the size of text on screen to make it larger. I do that.

So I would use the native resolution.

Here is a calculation for the aspect ratio of the screen resolutions calculated by dividing horiz by vert
Horiz		Vert	Ratio
1920	x	1080	1.777777778
			
			
1366	x	768	1.778645833
1024	x	768	1.333333333
768	x	1024	0.75
1200	x	800	1.5

Open in new window


If you select one with the closest ratio it would show the picture closest to its original proportions.

So 1366 x 768 should be the choice.

I find that lower resolutions on a higher resolution screen are not as crisp and clear, so I always use native. I can live with a picture being off proportion a bit.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I would use 1366 x 768.  It's the closest to what your screen ratio is, so should have the least distortion.


edit:
wow..  where did all those come from?
I need to read faster this early in the morning.     ; )

No one else said this yet so I'll pop in.
1366 x 768 is less than a pixel off from 1920x1080 even if you stretch it to fit, you won't notice any distortion at all.

I hate stretchy wallpapers, so if I can't get the exact ratio, I will either crop the image so that I can get the exact, or I will blow it up in an image editor to match the smaller dimension (say, height) and then have black bars on the right and left of the screen.
