Can I run a T440s with lower resolution than 1920 x 1080?

2014-04-15, 10:34 AM

Hi!

 

Can I run a T440s with lower resolution than 1920 x 1080, for example 1600 x 900? Is that possible and will it work just fine or will be there be problems like worse image quality or performance issues?

 

Thank you!

You can run the LCD at lower quality, it won't impact performance (you actually gain slight performance advantage with lower resolution). But the image quality suffer, it will get blurry.

Thank you!

 

I would imagine it would be better to get a screen with a lower native resolution like 1600x900, right?

 

I read something about HD+ and that it indicates maximum of 1600 x 900 resoultion. Guess I should look for one of thos.

yes if you need 1600x900 then get a screen with HD+, HD is 1366x768, and FHD is 1920x1080.
