    Okay, I'm trying to think of a way to do this....

    Is there a hack to raise the resolution on my macbook past the system limits? I'm thinking that this may be possible because of resolution independence in leopard.

    I know that there was a way to scale the resolution though terminal back in tiger, but I tried that in Leopard and it messed up my computer.

    Thanks

    There may be a way to bypass it..i am not sure..but it would not help...because leopard limits the screen resolution because any resolution higher then listed is not supported on the mac book lcd panel, so even if you manage to bypass it, you will not get u picture on your screen.

    The UI still has some issues, and certain apps react badly to it (Minefield, Azureus, Office '08), so I've stuck with the default dpi.
