PC HDMI to LCD, what resolution to choose

Hi --

I have a really old Sharp Aquos LC-32D40U 32" AQUOS™ high-definition LCD TV.
It has HDMI inputs (no DVI or VGA)

I connect a laptop to it for streaming TV.

From the laptop display settings:
-If I choose the native resolution for the Sharp TV (1366 x 768) then I am only able to select 29 or 30 Hz refresh rate (so is that really 60 Hz but interlaced 720i?)
-If I choose 1280 x 720 then I can choose 59 or 60 Hz (am I correct in that that is the 720p)

Both seem to look about the same, but I wonder which is the best to choose (or does it not matter if they look the same to me?)

Also why do they offer 29 and 30, or 59 and 60. For each pair, which one is the right choice or does it not matter?

Thank you!

I would choose higher resolution over higher fps
