the title kinda says it all. I am in the market to buy a laptop but I am unclear on the differences with the LCD screens.Can any one clear this up for me?????

If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half, how long will it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a cucumber?????

As far as I recall there a two types of laptop LCD screens; TFT & DSTN

TFT (Thin Film Transistor) is the best, it has a better viewing angle, is much brighter and has considerably less streaking when displaying moving images than DSTN.

DSTN (can't remember what that means) Is much cheaper but the colours tend to be less vivid. However today's DSTN screens are much improved since they first appeared.
