I recently bought a Dell E6510 laptop as a desktop replacement and so far I am very happy with my choice especially considering I got a Core I5 processor for not a lot of money. I also got the Dell Docking Station and I plan to set the computer up with an external mouse, keyboard, and monitor and this is where my question comes in.

The laptop I have has the lower resolution 15.6" display at 1366 x 768. When I bought my laptop I wasn't aware that the unit also offered resolutions of 1600 x 900 and 1920 x 1080. Obviously I would have preferred the HD display but all in all I am very happy with the laptop and its capabilities.

My question is if I buy a 24" LED or LCD monitor and connect it to my laptop with a Displayport to DVI cable will I get the hi-def display on the 24" monitor? Input on this is appreciated. Thanks all.

The Dell Latitude E6510 15.6" laptop comes in one of these 3 display models:

High Definition:
1366 X 768

High Definition + Wide View Anti-Glare:
1600 X 900

Full High Definition:
1920 X 1080

It also comes with one of these graphics devices:

Intel GMA HD Graphics

NVIDIA Quadro FX880M/1800M -or- NVIDIA NVS 3100M Graphics

The NVIDIA graphics device appears to be better capable of external monitor use.
