HDMI can support 2560x1440 and 2560x1600

Be careful, as most laptops will not support anything higher than 1920x1200 via HDMI or VGA connections.

HDMI often supports much higher res than that: The HDMI spec since 1.3 (2006) certainly allows for it.

For example, my cheap little Acer Aspire One AO722 netbook supports 2560x1440 via HDMI to my 27" Auria monitor.

Just make sure the laptop you buy supports at least 2560x1440 via HDMI (some do, some don't), and you should be fine.
