What is your laptop model? Generally nearly all laptops will be able to support a external monitor. I've never had any issues with the resolution through a tv before.

Any monitor with a VGA input will work with your laptop also you can hook it to tv that has a VGA input.

I've been using 32" Sceptre T.V. from Walmart (200.00) - twice as big 1/2 the price. Works fine.
