    and the display of a laptop is a flat panel display. flat panel doesn't mean desktop monitor. in fact, flat panels were common on laptops long before they were common on the desktop.
    I see. Thanks. Can't agree on what people tend to include in "flat panel," but it doesn't really matter. I searched on "flat panel computer" (didn't use the word monitor or screen). This is the sort of thing that tends to come up. No laptops there. Many, many pages.

    Since the thread was started over a year ago, it's possible that he has given up waiting (or even solved it himself).

    Isn't that the truth? Didn't even notice. I think Elvis has left the building.

    Just for people coming across this thread, LCD screens should display in their native resolution (highest). The ability of the graphics card to handle higher pixel count is meaningless. Operating an LCD below the native resolution will make the image appear larger but also fuzzy. This true of all LCD regardless if they are lit by LED or CFL. If someone has released a true LED display for regular computer use, I am unaware of it. Sony did build a prototype LED TV display last year.
