1920x1080 screen has twice as much pixels than 1366x768. A 1366 x 768 screen will give you less desktop space to work with and overall 1920x1080 will give you better image quality. For 15,6 inch 1080p is a must.

Hi,
i want to buy a laptop and i am between these two https://www.skroutz.gr/s/19747959/Lenovo-V130-15IKB-3867U-4GB-256GB-No-OS.html
and https://www.skroutz.gr/s/19860514/Lenovo-Ideapad-S145-15IWL-4205U-4GB-256GB-FHD-No-OS.html .The only difference is the resolution.So, what is the difference between these 2 resolutions, in practice?
1366x768. called HD ready or HD
1920x1080 is called fullHD
if you can try lowering your resolution and watch the difference.
if you dont have PC, lower your video settings on phone on youtube. to 140p (just to have an extreme example). In general higher resolution means it looks better BUT uses more power & needs better components to work.

HD devices are still fine, if you do incredibly basic stuff. Both of those CPUs's are horrible, double check if this CPU will be able to run what you want in fullHD resolution.

So if i buy the laptop with 1366 x 768 resolution i can't see videos with 1080p?
 
A lot is personal choice and what you are used to. There was a time when 1024x768 was perfectly fine on a 15” monitor. I do not recommend that resolution today.

Most people are less concerned about lower resolution on smaller screens. I personally do not 1080p on anything over a 25” monitor but many people are ok with it. For me the biggest problem with lower resolutions is when text gets less sharp, I find reading websites, using Excel and other text based activities annoying on a 27” 1080p but fine on 21”

Really you need to try both, maybe in a local shop?
