    Greetings Neon,

    The highest resolution for the iMac 17" is 1440 x 900. And beautiful it is too.

    From http://www.apple.com/imac/specs.html:

    Using a slightly large picture won't be a problem though. Mac OS X uses some pretty good scaling technology. :)

    you got that right. I use a wallpaper thats 1024x768 and my screen res is 1920x1440 but it looks great and is being stretched almost 4 times its size. not grainy at all.
