I like to buy a laptop that can support HD 1920x1080 display to support the graphics work I do.

Below is the model, any comment.  Even the LED display does not support 1920x1080, will I be able to connect to a external monitor that support 1920x1080.  Is the graphics card capable to do that?

Dell Inspiron 15R English Laptop, i5-4200U, 15.6-in. HD LED display

Yes, that laptop supports 1920 x 1080 for an external display.   You can either set the external unit as an extended display; or you can make it the primary (or even the only) display.   In either case, you can set it to its native resolution.    The only thing that would restrict the display is if you set the monitors to be mirrored -- then the max resolution will be limited by the less capable display (the laptop's own screen).

Hi Tommy,
In case you're looking for a second opinion, I agree with Gary. That laptop has the Intel HD Graphics 4400 card and HDMI 1.4a, so there should be no problem supporting an external monitor at 1920x1080 via the HDMI port in extended desktop mode, although the built-in screen supports just 1366x768. Regards, Joe

As it is the latest Intel CPU it has a larger graphics capacity, however you need to be more detailed in what you actually do, as you will not be able to play Crysis 3 on Ultra at 1080p. But you could watch videos at that res. Therefore we need to know what you actually plan to do?
