    Hey guys

    on the 2009 iMacs you were limited to a 720p resolution when you for example plugged your Ps3 to the iMac, even though the connector could show 1080p.

    Does anyone know if this is still the case on the new iMacs?
    Oh yeah, and this is only possible to do on the 27" models, since they have video input.

    Thank you :)

    Almost all ps3 games are native 720p so it shouldn't really be a problem.
