What is a TFT laptop screen?

I see many laptops advertised as having a TFT screen. Is this in fact an LCD screen like mine or do modern laptops use a new screen technology and am I missing out on something?

TFT stands for Thin Film Transister. I not sure about the technical differances between these screens and standard LCD but they do give a better, faster picture.

TFT (they are LCD also, it's just a particular type of LCD) are the standard screens you see on all laptops today.
