Wow...icons must be really small on that screen. :)


That's a hell of a laptop though...

Nice! :)

I had a 1600x1200 15 incher on my dell. I ended up replacing it recently with a 1400x1050 display because the writing was lust too small. These resolutions might be ok on a 17 incher, but the 15 is just too small.

I hope Longhorn finally gives us a Windows that can truly be reset for a higher dpi screen.... The half measures that exist now deny us the chance to benefit from things like 1600 x 1200 15" displays.

Because most people use Windows and its support for high resolution scaling is poor. Certain UI elements are not scalable.

Even the 1400 x 1050 screen can be challenging to get totally comfortable with.

You can set the DPI in Windows to higher and use large fonts and icons. But Windows doesn't scale all the UI elements. For example, the various UI widgets around my Mozilla browser are extremely tiny due to my 204dpi screen. Longhorn is supposed to fix some of these issues.

My new Dell laptop has a 15.4" screen with 1080x1920 resolution. (WUXGA. same as 1080i HDTV) Actually, my screen is 2.07 megapixels vs their 1.92 on a similar size space. However, that is nothing for a LCD... Check out one of these insane 9 megapixel 3840x2400 22" LCD's... Just $6000! :)
