    I have 2.26 Ghz MBP and I am planning to buy either the latest 2011 2.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i7 MBP or the latest 1.7GHz dual-core Intel Core i5
    processor MBA. Not sure yet.
    My question: Do these three laptops use the same lcd screen? I am aware that the video cards are different, I am just wondering about the screen. I could not find this information anywhere.
    thx

    no. The 13" MacBook pro has a standard display, with a resolution of 1280x800, while the 13" MacBook Air has a High Res display, with a resolution of 1400x900 (which is actually the same resolution of the standard display on the 15"). They are both LED backlit, and likely both made by the same manufacturer, but the Air has a higher-res display

    I MBP-13 had 1440x900, it would have killed MBA-13 for sure...

    That's exactly why the MBA has that resolution.

    Anyway I am not sure that screen res is a deciding factor in notebook acquisition... However, who knows...

    If you need to work with a lot of windows, a good screen resolution is a must. I think it's a very important deciding factor and surely has (and will) influenced many people out there.


    @jgz I wouldn't defenitely trust it.
