Laptop To Monitor, Will It Work?

I have a Toshiba Satellite C660D-181 laptop which has an AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics Card. My laptops max resolution is 1366×768. I am looking to buy a monitor which has a resolution of 1920×1080, will this work If I connect via HDMI? Will the resolution actually be 1920×1080 or will my 1366×768 just be stretched?
This is the monitor: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-S240HLbid-widescreen-monitor-Backlight/dp/B005QVZ79C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1359913787&sr=8-1

    does your laptop have a VGA port if so then you can buy a monitor

    Just connect them up with a HDMI Cable or VGA Cable and you should be fine.

    Yes, you can connect laptops to monitors. Every laptop has a VGA port and modern laptops have HDMI as well.
    You have a couple of options when using another monitor. You could expand, so you could write an e-mail in one screen and have a document open in the other screen. You can use the 1366×768 on your laptop AND the 1920×1080 on your monitor.
    You could also duplicate the image from your laptop to the monitor. Not useful in this case. You would have twice 1366×768.
    You could also disable the screen of your laptop and only use the screen of your monitor. You can obviously use 1920×1080 in this case.

    you are best connecting it up with a vga cable because these tell the monitor what size it wants the picture
