    From what i see, apples logo is pixeleted and not crisp, on the other hand the menus look fine... This whole thing looks like a patch, not a clear final solution right?

    The logo you looked at is from 10.4 not 10.5

    In 10.4 almost all icons are bitmaps.In 10.5 they are either tiff or pdf making for rounder corners etc..Better resolution.

    All apps should adhere to this standard by 2008.

    So CS3 doesnt adhere to this standard, right? Meaning that in October when Leopard will be released no apps will be ready for resolution independence, am i correct?

    I didn't say there wasn't any apps that weren't resolution independent already.I said Apple wants developers to be fully compliant by 2008.Most of the newer stuff coming out that was built with Leopard in mind are more than likely already ready.:)

    ok i get your point, but where can we find out which apps are ready already? cause to be frank, im about to make a decision wether to get an 17" MBPro with optional display or not and this squinting i might have to make on my HD display is really something i will take into consideration!!!

    Imagine this: Screen-zooming without pixelated blurriness.

    It's super-awesome and rumored to be in Leopard. ;)

    One of the MAIN features of Leopard is resolution independence. It's well known.

    Yes! If they can do it in the Wii internet browser, they damn well better do it in Leopard!

    Sorry for the confusion, that was unintended. I wasn't being sarcastic.

    I'm pretty certain resolution independence will be in Leopard with a "scalable UI". I recall seeing screenshots of earlier builds of Leopard that pretty much confirmed this.

    So would it be safe to buy the 17"MBPro with the optional res, having in mind that in Leopard i can scale the UI?

    its like having a 17 inch monitor, with the screen real-estate of a 19 inch monitor (or any size in this case).

    personally, this is one of the main features i have been waiting for since i heard of leopard.:D :apple:

    Whats the big deal? the big deal is that i need to know if i will be squinting or not to be able to see the menus on OSX if i get the MBPro 17" optional display. And if Leopard can fix this then i will order the 17" MBPro with the HighDef display without any fear!

    I was referring to WWDC, not resolution independence.
