We have a couple of Hewlett-Packard Spectres.   Not only does it help me to feel that I am in a Bond movie, they work well for FD clinical notes too.

Hi Angus. I've done a quick test and if I set my screen resolution to 1440 pixels wide I can see 5 days at a time. It does also depend on how wide your columns are set in Front Desk, which you can always experiment with. As a side note, all laptops and monitors have a native resolution and it's generally not a good idea to change away from this resolution as you may get blurry visuals.

Hi Lynda. Regarding the specifications you've provided, we don't see any issues with this machine being able to run Front Desk adequately. 

When considering a small laptop, physical screen size should also be considered. Too high a pixel resolution on a small screen can lead to very small, hard to read text for some users. We recommend that you go into a retail store and have a look at a laptop before purchasing one.
