    I plan to upgrade my 1440x900 lcd to a Hi Resolution panel myself. Would I need to reinstall the OS (10.7.3)? Or would it just recognize the new screen once everything is put back together?

    Are you able to do this? Id consider doing it myself if you are able to do so. Ive never really looked into it.

    It is more difficult than changing the internal hd but it is pretty doable. The hi-res panels are only around $120 on ebay.
