the 15' does it have a HIGH-DEF screen?
and wha tresolution is it?
is that a yes, or no?
It all depends on what you mean by high-def. In my opinion, it is a silly marketing term that is fairly useless in computers. The MacBook Pro 15" uses a 1440*900 resolution screen which is better than 720P on a TV, but worse than a 1080P. The MacBook Pro 17" uses either a 1680*1050 (worse than 1080P) or a 1920*1200 (better than 1080P) screen.
So, the MacBook Pro 15" is not "hi-def" but is a pretty good resolution for its screen size. Many would say that 1680*1050 would be better, and I think I would agree, but I use a 1280*800 screen, so really anything higher is something I would appreciate.
Anything above 720p vertical lines of resolution is High Definition quality. So yes, all MBP are high def. Even the MB display is HD quality. Just because something is not 1080p does not mean it isn't HD - it just means it is not 1080p HD.
The only reason to make it so complicated is to make more money off of uneducated consumers under the guise of a faster transition.
