    how likely is it to see apple introduce a HD screen in the 15" MBP's, its really the only thing holding me back from upgrading from my blackbook. the small resolution on a 15" is disappointing.

    I doubt that the 15" mbp will ever get a 1920x1200 as I think its way too small for a 15". Maybe a 1680x1050 would be the higher resolution in a 15" mbp but IMHO I think the 1440x900 is perfect for the 15" screen.

    At times when I had the 17" hi res mbp, I thought that even the 17" screen was a bit small for the 1920x1200 resolution. But when I owned the 17" powerbook in 2005, I used to think that 1680x1050 was perfect for the 17" screen.

    If the future 17" mbp has an option for led on the 1680x1050 resolution screen, I'll be all over that mbp. :D

    I think the odds are very, very low of them offering a 1920x1200 (I assume that is what you meant by HD), however, while I can't comment on the likelihood of this happening, I would love to see it - or at least 1680x1050.

    1440x900 is technically hi-def (>720p) but it just doesn't quite cut it for me.

    and we all know what comes along with more resolution!?!?!? gonna need a better video card for 1680x1050, at least for me.

    1440x900 is sufficient for me, ive learned to use spaces like no other. But itd be wonderful if the LCD on the MBP matched the resolution of my external. That way when i switch back and forth, icons dont get relocated all the time :)

    I'm hoping for atleast a BTO for 1680 x 1050, because in photoshop, every pixel counts! And whilst it isn't neccesary, it is nice to see abut more of the photo while I'm doing upclose work
