Though I would include how the graphics actually look because the specs alone aren't going to tell you that. Some screens look better (or worse) than the specs would lead you to think. Best practice: bring a flash drive loaded with your pics.

The specs actually is your best info for laptop screens. You can look up the panel model of the laptop, then look up its specs on http://www.panelook.com. Most panel are produced very closed to specs.

The down side of bringing your pics is that sometimes a panel is around 60%-80% sRGB, and depending on whether the picture viewer has color management or not, you might not see the difference, especially if you don't have a calibrated screen next to it to compare to. The upside is, most laptop screens are produced closed to calibrated (since they don't have a way to adjust contrast/color/...), so you can actually judge the panel with your pics
