I believe all video-adapters made less than... well, 10-15 years ago support resolutions up to 2048 x whatever and above. –  Sergey Apr 11 '12 at 11:18
@Sergey Yes! You're right... but I read about some external monitor resolution problems with GMA X3100, but with other laptops and with windows. –  falcon Apr 11 '12 at 11:37
Maybe somebody tried it exactly with this model? –  falcon Apr 11 '12 at 11:40
You would need to consult your hardware manual for specs, not ask on askubuntu. –  psusi Apr 11 '12 at 13:50
