I'm looking for an inexpensive used laptop that has an extremely bright monitor brightness at least at the highest setting.

I recently purchased an inexpensive Dell Latitude D800 and it's great except that the monitor brightness is still way too low, even set at its max, for me to be able to see text comfortably enough to work with it outside under a shady umbrella on a sunny day--a necessary situation for me sometimes.

If I purchase a laptop, chances are it will be one of the 46 results from this search, which is set to:
4 Stars & Up › $0-$151 › 15 to 15.9 Inches or 14 to 14.9 Inches

But it doesn't look to me like laptops have a 'Technical Detail' for LCD brightness. Without my being able to test these in the intended setting, I wonder how I should know which one to choose? Any help would be appreciated!
Thank you
