    Can anyone tell me whether a 15" TiBook's DVI out will support an external display in 1280 x 1024? According to an Apple sales rep as well as one of their support documents, it will; however, according to the specs it says:

    "Support for resolutions of 1280 by 854, 1152 by 768, 896 by 600, 720 by 480, and 640 by 480 pixels at 3:2 aspect ratio; 1024 by 768, 800 by 600, and 640 by 480 pixels at 4:3 aspect ratio"

    I have a free DVI input on my flat panel and am hoping to use it as an external display when I buy a PowerBook...

    Those are the resolutions for the LCD screen that is part of the PowerBook. The resolutions for a display attached to the DVI port can be up to 2048 by 1536. This is for either revision of the DVI TiBook. (667/800 or 867/1GHz)

    1280 by 1024 is a standard resolution and would definately be one of the supported ones.

    I have a PowerBook G4 800MHz and 20-inch Apple Cinema Display. The supported resolutions are:

    800 x 600
    1024 x 640
    1024 x 768
    1280 x 800
    1344 x 840
    1680 x 1050

    There are also stretched or otherwise distorted resolutions which, which supported, are not recommended.

    I've played with it, and anything but 1680 x 1050 on the 20-inch looks horrible. If you're MIRRORING your PowerBook's screen, the display supports any resolution your PowerBook does.
