When you're shopping for a laptop replacement screen, the resolution is one of the most important components to scrutinize. Screen resolution may be different for the same laptop model. Make sure that the screen you are buying is the right resolution.
The things you see on your laptop screen are comprised of millions of tiny pieces called “pixels.” These pixels form the colors, lines, and videos you see on your monitor. Resolution is a measurement of these pixels, specifically how many there are in a grid when measured horizontally and vertically. The higher the number of pixels in the grid, the clearer or better your resolution is.
Every LCD display panel is made up of a series of dots called pixels, and the more pixels you have, the more detail you can fit on-screen. Most laptops come with low-resolution, 1366 x 768 screens that show far less content than high-resolution panels with at least 1920 x 1080 pixels. Videos and photos also look a lot sharper at 1080p because the dots are smaller, allowing you to see fine details without the graininess you get on a low-res screen.
If you really want to kick your display quality up a few notches, you can get a screen with an even higher resolution than 1080p. Some laptops are available with panels that are 2560 x 1440, 3200 x 1800 or 3840 x 2160 (aka 4K) resolution. These higher-than-1080p resolutions are sharper, but they also use more power, harming battery life.
When you're going through spec sheets for different laptops, you may see the same screen resolution referred to with different names. For example, a 2560 x 1440 screen could be listed as a 2K display, or as WQHD. Here's a helpful table of common resolution names.
