    have you seen any pictures of the MacBook Pro? does it seem 'widescreen' to you? of course it is.

    but if your wondering if the screen is 16:10 then yes it is. the 15" MacBook Pro has a 1440x900 resolution which is bigger than 720p but smaller than 1080p.

    16:10 ratio widescreen with either 1440x900, 1680x1050 or 1920x1200.

    yep the 15" screen is 1440x900 and the 17" screen is either 1680x1050 or 1920x1200. 'true' HD is 1920x1080 (1080p) if the OP is wondering.

    Just incase you're wondering, every screen sold by Apple (excluding iPods) has a 16:10 aspect ratio and is therefore widescreen.

    It is HD (1280x720 is High Def). You want a screen capable of playing 1080p HD content.
