    So I was just on Wikipedia, and typed in Macbook. As I was reading along I noticed something odd..

    "Overview
    The MacBook features a widescreen 11.3" TFT display with a 800x600 resolution. Input and output ports include VGA and built-in 10BASE-T. Sound capabilities include built-in stereo speakers and headphone audio out. The MacBook uses a TrackPoint. Its hard disk is protected by a Sudden Motion Sensor.

    The MacBook is pre-loaded with System 7, which includes QuickTime, QuickDraw 3D, co-operative multitasking, a full-color user interface, and the revolutionary network protocol, AppleTalk. A free 30-day trial of the popular Macintosh software suite, AIDS, is also included."


    Guess this is a reason why one should never trust wikipedia?

    Edit: looks like its been corrected. i got a good laugh out of it though. System 7.. *shudders*

    That's why they should really ban people for a couple days instead of taking their editing priveleges aways. If it gets really bad, then just permanently ban them from Wikipedia.

    Low? 800x600 on an 11" screen is low?

    Well I suppose if you've got thousands to spend on a 15" LCD it's low - if you've got loads of money to spend to get you a 1024x768 screen then I guess it would look low.

    Yeah, the price of 1024x768 screens is outrageous. I'm sticking to 640x480, no one needs THAT many pixels.

    Edit: Haha, I just realized you were refering strictly to 11inch screens. Still, I would have thought they would have a higher standard resolution than that. That'll learn me to read my quotes before posting.

    Dude, it was a joke - you're over-thinking.

    I was pretending like it was 1992.
