Can you watch 1080p with that setup?

Not sure, but even if I cant, my laptop screen as far as I know is only 720p anyway, and the quality for me is amazing as is. Even on my 64" 1080p TV when I do watch on there every now and then is great.

Who want's to watch Netflix on their PC? A TV seems like a far better option to me…

FWIW I remember a time MyBB would have run a test like this and not piggy-backed another publication's research. :eek:

I pretty much always watch on my notebook in bed while working. Nice and comfy, specially in winter. In summer I will watch on the TV more.

Fair enough. Who actually wants to watch 1080p on a laptop screen anyway, right? It's nice that MS is best at something again either way. Even if it is something a bit pointless.

Yip.

Though with the new AV1 codec that Netflix, Google and MS is working on, I am pretty sure soon Chrome will be the same, if not better again. /shrug

Yeah luckely I don't watch telly on my PC. Except if your PC is connected to your telly but that is a PITA on it's own.

Means a hoot anyway when your browser crashes...

My Google Chrome freezes often, on a few computers, so yes, any other browser is better than Chrome.
