Laptops with the Highest Screen Resolution

The more pixels you have on your laptop’s display, the sharper images look. Instead of just seeing a mop of hair on a character's head in a movie, you want to be able to make out each strand. These days, everyone should get a screen with a bare minimum of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is also known as 1080p, or "full-HD" resolution. The laptops below are all available with screens that exceed 1080p, allowing them to show a lot more detail.
