Just a quick question, if you don't mind!

I'm looking at pricing options of the MBP, and I noticed that there isn't an option for a high-res, nor high-res antiglare display on the 13". Is this a site glitch, or is there NOT an option for those displays on the 13" MBP?

Not a glitch. It's not available on the 13".

So the 13 inch only has the 1440x900 display?

Bleh. That's quite a jump from 1920x1080 (Dell S2309 monitor) to 1280x800. I'll mostly be having it connected to that Dell display, but when I'm out and about, that'll be quite a shift for myself, and my eyes. :eek:

Hardly a place for most people, at least it often seems that way.

I actually just read the entire spec page yesterday. I was going to re-refrence it today, but my internet sucks in the country. So, I just quickly popped over here. :(

Of course, if you can get to this page, you can get to Apple's spec page.

I used Verizon's 3G tethering on my Mac to get here. My ISP (Time Warner) SUCKS in my region. If I load a page with quite a bit of photos, videos (QuickTime and Flash), etc, my cable modem usually has to be rebooted.

Is the HighRes 15" too much for you?

It's just out of my range. Heck, I had to sell my iMac just to get half the money for the MBP. If I can get the extra $250, then I'd get the 15".

----------

You do realize that the screen on the MBP is actually ~30% of the area of your Dell, right? ;)

B

No, I didn't!

----------

haha are u serious?

13inch does not have high res...for now

Yes, I was serious.

----------

The 13" MBP has 1280x800 (as quoted above) while the 13" MBA has 1440x900. (EDIT: Too slow ;) )

B

That makes NO sense. Why give the MBA a larger resolution then the MBP? :eek:

If you need to get to information under those circumstances, just go to Safari > Preferences > Appearance and uncheck "Display images when the page opens". Pages will load much faster. You can also install ClickToFlash to control which Flash content plays on websites. Adblockers also help reduce bandwidth requirements when surfing.
