I don't know whether to take the optional High Resolution model of the 17" MacBook Pro, because I'm afraid things might be 'too small' if you know what I mean, and there's no Apple store in the neighbourhood that has one of those on display. That's why I was wondering ... If you use 1680 by 1050 on a 17" Hi-Res MBP (the one that supports 1920 by 1200), will it be a bit blurry? Or will the result be the same as on the regular 17" MBP? If the results are the same, I'm definitely getting the Hi-Res, so I can switch between the two resolutions when watching movies / doing regular stuff. (unless I like the 1920x1200 for regular stuff of course, then I'll just keep it that way) Money is not an issue. Let me know what you think.
