No. It is a fixed pixel display. Everything, that is not windowed, will be displayed at 1024x768.

If they are following previous 42" configurations for a "720p" panel, the pixels will be shaped to a 4:3 ratio and are not square. Those 4:3 ratio pixels are in a 4:3 ratio matrix (1024x768). So, you get the square of 4:3, which is 16:9.

I'm not sure what you mean by "everything that is not windowed." Why would they report resolution in a 4:3 ratio?

I should have said full-screen instead of, "everything that is not windowed".


4:3 pixels in a 4:3 matrix/resolution ends up as 16:9.

Square pixels are shaped to a 1:1 ratio, they have the same dimension for both height and width. With square pixels, the 4:3 matrix will retain its 4:3 shape.
