    Hey guys,

    I'll be getting a PB soon, and most probably it will be a 12". However, the one thing that may push me to the 15" would be a low maximum resolution on the 12".

    Currently I'm using a NEC 2080UX+ (heh, it is even better than Apple's actually:D) and it has a native resolution of 1600*1200, so I'm just wondering if the 12" supports that?

    It only supports up to 1024x768. No clue why you want anything greater. It is a 12" screen afterall...:rolleyes:

    Depending on what you are gonna be doing the 64MB Geforce 5200 might be on the weak side if you are running in extended desktop mode using the 1600x1200 display in conjunction with the 12" built in display. If you plan on using the your external 1600x1200 LCD frequently I would get the the 15" with 128MB Radeon 9700Mobility.
