    Does anyone other than me think its odd that the iMac 17" and the macbook pro have the same screen resolution. I'm thinking that the 17" screen should have a higher resolution, but its the same as the 15" laptop.

    I think it does have the same resolution- 1440x900. I'm not sure why, I would also think that the 17" should be able to go a little higher....

    You tend to sit closer to a laptop screen that a desktop one so it makes sense for the laptop screen to be higher resolution.
