Netbook display at 50hz?

Hi, I'm thinking about buying a netbook, partly for portable winuae action.
The specs seem good enough on this HP model and it has an anti-glare screen which is very important.
I think the intergrated intel gpu can do 50hz but is there any way of fnding out if the display can? It dont want to get one home only to find it does jerk-o-vision scrolling!
Anyone have any experience with these? Thx.

I have an Acer netbook and the display is set at 60hz.

Is there an option to set the display to 50hz in the control panel?

Not sure where I would find that, all the available screen resolutions run at 60hz

Edit: Ahh, found the monitor settings, the only available setting is 60hz

I don't think any PC graphics card shows 50Hz in there by default?

Install powerstrip or similar and see if you can get a 50Hz mode to display on the TFT.

some monitors lcd or crt can display 50hz and almost all gfx cards can display 50hz
by default windows hide 50hz modes because on CRT monitors screen blinks a lot...worse than 60hz .....which is terrible for the human eye

No problem to create 50 Hz modes - by default they are hidden on my laptop. With my monitor starting from 24 kHz 320x400 is the smallest one that works...
...testing...Geesus, what happened - I could create working 320x240 and 320x200 to my external BenQ FP222W. Never before succeeded so something in the latest NVidia drivers has changed. So my 24 kHz monitor did 320x200@60 Hz! And it was a little difficult to get out from that mode and to find the sliders and buttons... A grab from the 320x200@60 screen - looked pretty bad when my monitor scaled it to 1680x1050...

Without one of those rare few flatpanel monitors, I think this is a clear case of 'fahgeddabowdit' (c) Arnold.
