    So i'm thinking about buying a MB but there are two things that are tickling me. First the resolution of 1280x800, second the "superdrive". I see that on all MBs the resolution is the same so there's no way to pick a more expensive model to overcome this (not considering MBP). With the superdrive however i could go for the next model in the range, although i don't really need the higher specs of the other components and thus - you'd guessed it - rather save $200.

    What's the likeliness there will be a higher resolution option on MB some day relatively soon? Will a vid upgrade on MB imply a reso upgrade as well or is that out of the question on a 13" screen?

    Is there a possibility that Apple wakes up and realiases it's 2008 and drop the superdrive in favour of combos? That's like $10 on construction or something.. :rolleyes:

    You don't really want a much resolution on 13". The Combo Drive is here to stay.

    A video upgrade will not mean display upgrade.

    Don't forget the MB is a consumer mainstream priced notebook; by putting an expensive high resolution panel in the 13" model they are 1) Jeopardizing sales of the 15" of people who want the higher resolution; 2) It makes no economical sense; 3) People will get even more confused.

    It would interesting if they dropped the Superdrive and used only Combos ;)
