    They were available at the same time.

    Normal screen is 1650x1050, Hi-Res screen is 1920x1200.

    yeah similar question, does the difference between those resolutions make a big difference when viewing it?

    well, I'm sure you could have calculated yourself that you can squeeze 33% more information on the higher resolution screen, meaning you can have more windows open and view images in higher resolution.

    i meant the quality of the screen itself, not the real estate you get while using it.
