    What kind of resolution do you get on a 12' screen? That thing must be costing you a fortune.

    If those are the simple games you want to play, the iBook is more than enough. 'nuff said.

    Nice resolution but really crappy portability. I got one last year and honestly, it was almost embarassing carrying it around; not to mention awkward. I mean, the Apple logo was about 2 feet alone. They kid you not however, when they say "full sized keyboard", writing an essay was quite a workout.

    Is anybody going to let the original poster in on the joke?

    :D

    p.s. the picture of you jumping around on those giant keys doing the essay cracks me up!

    Ghost Recon. Raven Shield. Wingnuts. C&C generals. Warcraft. UT2003+2004.

    I've ran all these on my 12" AlBook: 1Ghz, 512MB, 32MB nVidia 5200(worse than your Ati). It does OK. No it's not amazing, but it's playable and enjoyable. I've even run Halo, but settings have to be turned down ALOT!

    I would think your iBook will do pretty good as an occasional portable gaming machine.

    To answer the other post on resolution, if you keep going proportionally a 12' screen should have a resolution of 12,288x9,216. (I think) You would not be able to run Halo native rez on that. No way. :D

    Tell me about it, the refesh on OS X alone is staggeringly slow. Don't even LET me tell you about exposé.

    Personally, I've been using my feet when typing and playing games. Turns out, I've gotten a lot better at DDR and the like. :cool:
