Hey guys, here's what I'm trying to do. I have a 14" iBook, and am hooking it up to a HP f1703 flat panel display, which sports a recommended resolution of 1280x1024. When I plug it in, it mirrors the screen perfectly (I know of the spanning hack, but I really do want to mirror), but it's fuzzy. This is because there are a certain number of pixels in the monitor, and displaying anything but that certain number will produce fuzziness, correct? Is there any way to force my iBook to run at 1280x1024, just while it's plugged into the display, or is there a way to possibly make the LCD not look so fuzzy? I know that I could purchase a CRT or possibly a 15" LCD who's native resolution is 10x7, but I really don't want to buy a new monitor just for my iBook. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And one easier question, I know that when spanning across multiple monitors, the graphics card has to work harder, as it's in a sense 'powering' both screens. Does this additional stress occur when mirroring screens? Muchas gracias!
