Default Laptop LCD screen

I'm considering buying a laptop with the Mobility Radeon 9600 (M10) for gaming. I know that LCD screens get blurry when running at a resoloution other that the native resoloution and that ghosting can occur in fast moving games. How noticeable are those problems?

From my experience, a top of the line LCD screen with DVI is great...and sleek, too!

After using it for a while you start to not mind it, but once you hook up an external CRT again you realise how much you were suffering

yes, I suggest buying a nice CRT and running the laptop from there while gaming. You should also turn off the laptop's screen (by probably closing the lid) so that all the graphics juice goes to the crt.

but then you'd need an external keyboard & mouse if you do close the "lid"

an excellent monitor is a 21" Sony Trinitron, but you don't have to go that far
