Laptop HP 250 G3

Celeron N2840 2.16GHz
Intel HD Graphics (32 mb vram)
4 GB Ram

If i buy 1080p monitor to connect it onto my laptop, will this resolution slow down whole pc, like if i open some file will it take longer to open it up, or if i open up an Text Document. Will it take the same time, or will lag more?

not much. the output to the monitor will be made by the GPU(which is part of the CPU) but its mostly built in to the electronics. what will slow it down is if you put a high density image on the desktop background. it will be affected a little by what output it has, hdmi/displayport etc. and whether you are adding digital audio to that output. the reason it wont lag more is that you are NOT changing the number of pixels on your laptop screen(because you cant). so your laptop screen is still the same, assuming that what you want on the external display is what you see on the laptop display and not something different. if you are expecting to play games on the other screen then you should be aware that most screens have just ONE native screen size, and they wont even show a picture if your output is set to some other size, unlike old vga screens which just resized the screen to fit to the edges no matter what size you set them to. and most games like to be played at a set screen dimensions which WILL slow the GAME right down as it has to manage more data for the game play.

On a laptop, most video chips or integrated video have a limit of resolution out the external monitor port--whatever the internal panel will do. If your panel is smaller and 1366x768 or less, that is all the new monitor will ever show.
You can get an external video adapter to run the 1920x1080 native resolution monitor from USB. If your machine has a faster USB 3.0, might be suitable for many uses when running an HDMI or DVI output to that new monitor.
