I have a 2008 ( i think.. maybe 2007?) HP elitebook 6930p laptop. I was wondering if i will get HD using an HD external monitor with this laptop. I dont care about movies. This is for still picture purposes. I realize i could just buy a new computer or laptop as a solution... but could someone answer this question anyway, please. Thanks.  Below is a link of the laptops specs

Both are the same links. Not sure if this site blocks them (xxxxx), so i added a few spaces after www on the second link


Thanks in advanced

Hi, your laptop has a VGA output meaning you can essentially use any HD monitors that has VGA input. In terms of monitor for viewing pictures, you should have a look at high end IPS monitor for the best experience.

It would be helpful to know what you mean by HD.  1080p is 1920x1080.  The screen resolution of that laptop is 1280 x 800.  However you should be able to display 1920x1080 via VGA on an external monitor that supports that resolution.  While this isn't the mobile version is should be similar enough and will do up to 2048 x 1536 over VGA.
