    Hey everyone,

    Got this beautiful machine today but remember reading somewhere that are some resolutions the graphics card has to work hard at rescaling or some other technical jargon.

    What resolution should I have it at to have the graphics card not need to work hard?

    The only resolution that might make a difference is 1152x720 which is 1/4 of the native resolution, so less processing is required. In practice that's probably not a resolution suitable to working on, so choose the one that works for you best. There are other things that will have a much larger battery impact than the specific resolution you choose.
