Acer Aspire 6930G - Refresh Rate?

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium X32
I've got a real basic question about laptops and display refresh rates - Just bought the above Acer laptop - 1st time I've ever used a laptop, or run Vista! Looking at some older posts re laptops and refresh rates it looks like 60Hz is common for laptops 'cos the technology's different to CRT's.

Be grateful if anyone can confirm this is the case, - Just unsure about a couple of things re the Aspire's display - The graphics adapter is the NVidia GeForce 9300M GS.

i) In Vista's Device Manager the "Monitor" is listed as a Generic PnP Monitor - so it's using the std Windows Vista driver. Am guessing this may only be referring to any external displays that might be connected - and not the laptops own screen?

ii) Main reason I'm asking is that the only refresh rate - at any of the available resolutions - that I can get is 60Hz - which, being used to desktops and CRT monitors, seems really low.

Have searched for any other NVidia / Aspire drivers that might help, but haven't found any that appear relevant - Currently using the latest NVidia driver which I d/l from the Acer site = V Dated 19/7/08.

Grateful for any info

LCD displays are generally rock solid at 60Hz. Also, LCD displays have a native resolution, which should be used. All other resolutions are extrapolated and don't look as crisp.
