I bought a Lenovo Z50-70 few days ago. I'm trying to set full HD resolution 1920x1080, but the maximum available is 1366x768. This laptop reportedly has a full HD screen. Graphic card drivers are the newest possible.

    HD is 720p or higher. 1366x768 is 720p. – Yorik Dec 2 '16 at 20:05

    @PolishRandom What is the model number of your laptop? It starts with 594. – Steven Dec 2 '16 at 20:33

    1366×768 is definitely not 720p. 720p is 1,280×720, by definition. 1366×768 is, if anything, 768p. – Cody Gray Dec 2 '16 at 20:52

    @CodyGray But it is higher than the HD standard, which means it should be able to render HD video/images/whatever. – jpmc26 Dec 2 '16 at 22:30

    why is this question ever upvoted? No detailed hardware info. No OS info. No screenshot. Not replying to the only answer? What's wrong with you people? – user3528438 Dec 3 '16 at 3:09

  • @LightnessRacesinOrbit In my research, several sites only mention the full HD display. The question initially apologized for bad English. Perhaps, the user inadvertently purchased the wrong model or referenced specs from a different Z50-70 model (there are 19 models of Z50-70's listed on the Lenovo site). – Steven Dec 3 '16 at 0:09

    @Steven oh boy, where are the days where a model name would identify the actual model rather than just the chassis stuff gets packed into. – John Dvorak Dec 3 '16 at 9:12

    @Steve: Yes, perhaps. – Lightness Races in Orbit Dec 3 '16 at 12:32
