    Most laptops for some reason seem to still be the old 1366 x 768 resolution as opposed to a more modern 1920 x 1080 full hd!

    I'm having trouble finding one with the following spec:

    Windows OS
    15.5/15.6" full hd touchscreen
    DVD drive
    6GB RAM+
    1TB drive+

    The Sony VAIO series come close but was put off due to the poor wi-fi issues.

    Can anyone recommend one with at least the above spec?

    Many thanks

    For good reason, because many programs size things in pixels when you increase the resolution you make everything smaller. This gives you more room to work, but also makes text smaller. Screens that are harder to read are naturally always going to be an option and never ubiquitous.

    What is likely to happen is that we'll get multiples of the lower resolutions so that older programs can get scaled up nicely (one pixel becomes a 2x2 pixel block) while more modern programs can take advantage of the higher resolution to provide more detail. Given the TV industry's current influence then I'd venture to guess the next ubiquitous resolution will be 3840 x 2160 as it's triple 1280x720 and double 1920x1080 (it also happens to be one of the resolutions competing for their Ultra HD/4k label).

    As for suggestions that meet your criteria, what about:
    Asus N550JV-CM067H 15.6" Touch Laptop - Core i7 2.2GHz, 8GB, 1TB - N550JV-CM067H - CCL Computers
