Hp is finally offering a full HD screen option on select HP Pavilion notebooks. Starting now, the HP Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition and Pavilion dv7t Quad Edition notebooks can be configured with a 1920 x 1080 resolution display when ordered direct from HP.
Up until now, the HP Pavilion dv6t only had a 1366 x 768 resolution for the 15.6″ display and the Pavilion dv7t only had a 1600 x 900 resolution. Commonly these resolutions are referred to as 720P and 900P respectively. The new 1920 x 1080 resolution, known as 1080P, allows you to see more on the screen at the same time.
If you had a 15.6″ HP Pavilion dv6t with a 1920 x 1080 display next to the HP Pavilion dv7t with a 1600 x 900 resolution screen you would still be able to fit more on the smaller screen because of the higher resolution. Up until recently many consumers had not paid much attention to screen resolution, but as we begin to multitask more and more, it is becoming a bigger deal.
It is also something that movie buffs may appreciate, even though we’d be hard pressed to tell the difference between a movie played back in 720P and 1080P on such a small screen.
The 1080P High Definition display option is currently only available on the HP Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition and Pavilion dv7t Quad Edition notebooks and adds $150 to your system cost. In our opinion, if you work in multiple windows this upgrade is well worth it. If only HP offered a higher resolution display on the high end HP Envy 14.
