Display is best for laptop
Laptops are great for mobility and convenience, but they do not have the same level of screen quality as a desktop. When choosing a laptop, it is important to decide whether you want the best possible picture or if mobility is more important to you. If video editing, photo editing, or any other work that demands high definition screens- choose a full HD display with 1920×1080 resolution; if portability and battery life are most important- choose an LED backlit IPS display with 1366×768 resolution.
You can also notice that sharper text is visible on the laptop while missing pixels are present in the monitor’s display even when using scaling options to enlarge or squeeze images. This is because more attention was spent designing laptops to have better picture quality than desktops, which are typically used for other tasks besides graphic design.
Laptops also contain fewer pixels per inch than desktop monitors so you will see larger pixels if you increase your screen’s distance from your eyes by putting it on an elevated surface or leaning back further in a chair- this effect is less apparent on laptops since you keep the screen close.
Laptops’ smaller screens make text look much sharper since there are fewer pixels to display images and words, which is especially noticeable in larger laptops with 17-21 inch screens. Larger screens have fewer pixels per inch so you will lose the crispness that comes from a large number of pixels when you increase your distance from the screen or if it has a lower pixel count than a desktop monitor’s.
LED or LCD
LCD is an acronym for liquid crystal display. A LCD display can be further divided into two categories: active matrix and passive matrix. Passive matrix displays are the cheapest of the two, but they do not work as well as active matrix displays. An LED screen is a monitor that uses light-emitting diodes for visual output rather than cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL). Active Matrix TFT refers to a number of closely related flat panel display technologies from various manufacturers, all based on a thin film transistor array as opposed to discrete transistors, which were used in older “passive” designs such as conventional CRTs, EL panels and TN displays.

Based on the above information, LCD is a better option for laptop because it has higher resolution and color depth than LED screens.
Out of these three factors, we found that screen size and refresh rate had the greatest impact on real-world performance…Response time only became an issue when we got below 8 milliseconds . Below this threshold, fast moving objects or lots of them started to turn blurry at low refresh rates even though they were still perfectly visible on larger screens high up the scale. On the other hand, we found that LCDs tended to do much better up until a response time of 16 milliseconds and then their performance dropped off much more steeply than that of their LED counterparts.
