this is very true. most 32" hdtvs have a 1366x768 resolution, very close to that of the macbook's 1280x800 resolution. so hooking a macbook up to a television will look really similar to what you're already seeing. you won't really be getting any real screen real estate out of it. it'll just look bigger.The important thing is not the size, but the resolution. It doesn't matter what physical size the display is as long as the resolution is within the MacBook's limits.
