    Since I am a very hardcore gamer, I need to be able to travel to LANs with something light so i gave the :apple: a try, WOW this little thing can do a lot. I'm only having one tiny bit problem, I don't know how to play my games on 4:3(blackbars)and i CAN NOT game on widescreen(16:9 16:10) because its soo weird and I have the late 08 version with ATI 2600 XT. My question is how do i change the screen scaling on windows.
    Thanks in advance. :p

    Are you talking about changing the scaling in Windows or in OS-X?

    In OS-X, go to System Preferences > Display, and select the resolution you wish. You can also add a menu bar item so you can make the change with opening System Preferences.

    What verison of windows? XP, Vista or 7?
    Boot camp or VMWare/Parallels?

    XP:
    Right click the desktop > properties> Advanced tab > Change the resolution slider

    Vista:
    Cant remember exactly, but same concept. Right click desktop> Customize or some thing..

    Windows 7
    Right click desktop > change resolution


    Then in the game, set the resolution to the same as you set the desktop (or some other widescreen resolution.)
