I saw them when I went to the Apple Store today. I prefer the standard resolution - easier on the eyes.Has anyone seen the 1680x1050 high res screens yet? I'm wondering if they may be too high res, making everything on the screen too small to read.
oldany answer on this?
stupid of me to be so wrapped up on the look versus the performance, but the black just looks so... schmexee...
I own a Asus G1s which has the same resolution in a 15.4 display as well. Although I run Vista I am very satisfied with the size of everything. Once you get used to it, it is really awkward to see icons so big in other computers. I'd say it is a good option but worth $100 more? not so sure about it..Has anyone seen the 1680x1050 high res screens yet?

you can always return it within 14 days.My local store in NJ didn't have any hi-res models in stock.
I bought a 2.53 15" this morning without the hi-res display and have been wondering if I made a mistake ever since.. Serious buyers remorse. I am coming from a 2007 MacBook so either way, this display is way better than my old machine.
Not that there is much I can do about it now, but I am wondering if I would have benefited from the hi-res display or not. I do a good deal of work in Aperture 3. I never do anything with HD video, nor do I plan to.
Was there a noticeable difference with anything besides screen real estate?
Should I have held out for a hi-res?
Well technically 1440x1050 in a 4:3 configuration is the same pixel density as the regular resolution Macbook Pros (1440x900)Indeed. I have a 15" laptop with a (4:3) screen resolution of 1440x1050... moving to this PBG4 was a bit of a shock, and I really wish the resolution was much, much higher.
Maybe I'll go for this MBP eventually...
I would bite the bullet and eat the restocking fee and get what you want. You're going to be living for years with this lappy wondering if you shouldn't have upgraded.And with every post the buyers remorse gets worse....
Too small is all relative. If you've seen one of those netbook screens, you know of which I speak.Has anyone seen the new high res 15'' screens firsthand? Any pictures? Impressions?
Do you think the 17'' high res (1920x1200) screens make things too small?
