So I purchased a new MacBook Pro C2D 15" (the second configuration: 2 GB RAM, 256 MB VRAM, etc) last week to replace a Dell Inspiron 9300. It's a solid little machine and I'm quite happy overall. I was able to quickly transfer over all the files on my PCs and the claims of things "just working" are more or less justified. I have one regret, though. Normally my practical side would shrug something like this off, but when you drop $2500 on a machine, "practical" tends to take a backseat to "emotional". My issue is the screen resolution. I didn't think I would care at first, but the MacBook Pro 15" has a fairly low screen resolution (1440x900). The 17" is a little better (1680x1050), but not as good as my previous laptop (1920x1200). I didn't really notice it until I started playing my favorite game, World of Warcraft. Now, by and large it plays well (surprisingly well in Mac OS X -- I may not need Bootcamp for this game). But you can see from the following screenshots that things are considerably more pixelated at the MacBook Pro 15"'s resolution. Even the 17" MacBook Pro still looks kind of pixelated compared to my old laptop's resolution. (In particular, look at the character name in the upper left corner and the level number. The old laptop's text was clean and rounded. The MacBook Pro's appears pixelated and the level number bleeds off the circle to the left).

But my friend didn't spend $2500 on a laptop. I guess what I'm looking for is some kind of reprieve. Someone saying "it looks fine" (even if it doesn't lol). Is everyone else cool with the 1440x900 res on theirs?
