Laptop and projector resolution.
Jul 18, 2013

Hi All,

We have a 1400x1050 Canon projector and need to buy a new laptop to use with it.  Am I correct in assuming that if we buy a laptop with a separate graphics card then we will be able to run the projector at its native resolution via the VGA port?

If we use HDMI will that only send 1920x1080 to the projector which will then downsize?

We were thinking of something along the lines of the Dell Inspiron 15R with i5, 6Gb RAM and Radeon HD7730M card.

Any help much appreciated.
