    I am looking at purchasing a 17" screen laptop but can't decide on which screen, 900p or 1080p would best suite my needs.

    I am not into gaming or playing videos on the laptop but do a bit of photo editing. It's main use will be general e-mails, web searching and other text based work a letter writing etc.

    I want to have the best resolution but I am concerned that the font size of text with a 1080p screen will be too small resulting in having to reduce the resolution which would a waste of time having the 1080 screen in the first place.

    I am not in a position to be able to compare the 900p and 1080p screens in use so would appreciate comments/advice from anybody who has perhaps had experience?

    How much smaller would the normal text be on a 1080p screen compared to a 900p or would a 1080p screen be wasted if you were not playing games or watching videos?
