    Hi,

    I am having MacBook Pro 13 inches, Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.4.
    The highest available resolution for my screen is 1280x800. I want to get suitable more resolution than 1280x800 (Same Aspect ratio).

    Can anyone direct me how to make it, does anyone know any display drivers available for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    not possible

    you'd need more physical pixels on the screen

    You can't. You will have to buy an external monitor.

    As others have said, the built in lcd screen resolution is what it is but you can try spaces for more space or use a external screen up to 2560 by 1600 pixels. That's a lot.

    I wonder if there are any specialty services that will replace the display panel for one with higher res

    I remember I tried looking for this. Problem is there aren't many LCD manufacturers that make 16:10 ratio 13" screens, and the ones that do mostly make 1280x800 :(

    Besides, project development, poster designing and Cards designing is my parallel work (Hobby too). So, If I can get more resolution, my productivity can come up little.

    Any help is good, but I cannot afford extra hardware at this time. :mad: :(

    All LCDs have a native resolution—meaning there's physically a certain number of pixels (unlike a CRT).

    Using anything other than its native resolution simply fakes the image and so is pointless to do. It tries to fit/approximate/average the one display into the other. So all you end up with is an inaccurate representation with missing and/or fuzzy detail.

    If you want more space, get an external monitor.
