    Topic says it all; has anyone got any pictures or maybe even some footage in high quality so we can get a nice impression on what to expect? :cool:

    Thanks! :apple:

    Just wondering, what's the resolution (in pixels by pixels) of 1080p?
    How much would it be scaled to play on the 1440x900 15" MBP?
    And would that make it look like crap? (comparatively speaking)

    EDIT: 1920x1080 : )

    No, it wouldn't look crap playing a 1080P video on a 720P screen.

    However, if you are downloading something or whatever and have the choice between 720 and 1080, get the 720. 1080 uses quite a bit more power than 720 does.

    If you want some HD demos, you can get some off Apple's website and Microsoft offer some too.

    You only really notice a difference between 720 and 1080 up close - if you sit back at the proper viewing distance, it is almost negilable.

    The difference between HD Ready and Full HD might not be earth-shaking big, but definately not negilable either. I've had both a 720p/1080i Plasma tv and a 1080p Plasma tv and I think the last one looks alot better.

    Does look better when your up close. But who watches TV 2 feet from the screen?

    Proper viewing distance is about 8-12ft. At that distance, I found it hard to notice any worthwhile differences (I work in a department that sells computers, tv's etc, so I can easily compare two TV's, one on 720 and one on 1080 side by side).

    Not saying you are wrong, but in my opinion 1080 is only worth while if you are investing in a TV above 46 inches.
