    Well, since it looks like the PB's won't be getting a speed bump at Paris, I think I might just bite the bullet and get a 12" now. My only question is, will the video card in it be able to sufficiently drive a 1600x1200 external monitor? Actually, does anyone have links to any kind of reviews/info on the card the 12" uses? It's sort of the one sticking point with me right now. :)

    Ive got my 12" pb connected to a 19" CRT and the display options will allow it to be set as high as 1792 x 1344 !! Go for the 12". its awesome!

    It's no problem

    Hey, I have 12" PB i got around xmas. And I use a 19" external monitor at home and a 20" or 21" at work. The PB will handle the monitors capacity, even individually. I go to work plug it in, no need for setup use 1600x1200. then I go home plug it in and again no need for setup use 1280x1024 (whatever the number here, but close enough).

    Something so awesome it can't be left out. If you have 2 external monitors liek I'm doing. You'll be able to have different backgrounds on each monitor and the PB will remember which is who. It's so freaking awesome.

    Well, it's not quite what you're looking for. But my second monitor is an 8yr old, 15" operating at 1024x768. It works just fine for me.

    They may not get a speed bump at Paris, but within 60 days afterwards seems right. Based on the Buyers Guide history here that is.
