Does this mean I have a high definition monitor? Or is it just tricky wording to make it sound more marketable? Is there anyway to test this?

Most newer laptops with a widescreen monitor have native support for 720p or 1080p resolutions. But as mentioned even 4:3 crt's have been able to support similiar resolutions for numerous years.

marketing.

720p ibeleive is like 1360 x 768

true 720p is 1280x720 but MOST "720p" hdtv's have a native 1366x768 rez thus having to upscale the 720p content slightly

as per the "native 720p support" like stated its a marketing ploy, just like "vista certified" or "sli certified" stuff... hell my 21inch sony trinitron crt thats 5 yrs old does a max resolution 2048x1536 which is greater than even 1080p rez!
