Screen Specifics
11) What screen resolution would you prefer?
Low Resolution – Low resolution screens offer big text and icons that are easy to read. Less stuff fits on the screen, which translates into more scrolling.

Medium Resolution – Text and icons are smaller than a low resolution screen, and more fits onto the screen. Medium resolution screens are good for having applications open side by side, like a web browser while playing a video or two Office documents.

High Resolution – On a high resolution screen text and icons will be very small. Text may be hard to read. Lots of stuff fits on the screen, which means less scrolling. High resolutions screens are good for applications that require a high level of detail like CAD or Photo Editing.

Getting the right screen size and resolution are essential for your viewing comfort level. Everyone is different. Some like really small text, while others like larger easy to read text. If you are unsure of what to purchase, I would strongly recommend that you check some Gaming pc screens before you buy to see what you like.

12. Do you want a glossy, reflective screen or a matte, non-glossy screen?
