    1920 x 1200 on a 17" screen? my dell 2407wfp (24") runs the same resolution... :eek3:

    this could be good or it could be hard to use, id like to see one first.

    1680x1050 on the 17 is just fine for my purposes. It's still one of the nicest displays I've ever seen.

    What do you guys think - C1D Blackbook to 15", 2.4ghz MBP... advisable upgrade? Taking into consideration that i'll probably be waiting until october or so to do it...

    duude id wait... i had no choice. I had a 17" 1.33 ghz g4 powerbook i just sold.. and i didnt realize how much i used my laptop till i didnt have it. So i had no choice to hold out as long as i could.

    You on the other hand have a bad ass laptop to get you buy till the next revisions and the new OS release... also they will up the options by then im sure. So its a win win.. just keep on the macforums so you know when they will be out so you dont take that much more of a hit on your macbook

    I'll definitely wait until leopard comes out. Only problem on my end is compulsive buyers syndrome... of course, who's to say that once I have that, I won't be looking into the next one that comes out? :o
