WOW ! You must have really good eyes <VBG> What size is your monitor??

It is a 15.4 inch LCD display on a laptop.

So what's the point in running such a huge resolution? The LCD won't be
working in anything over 1200x1024, and more likely 1024x768. If you drive an
LCD at over its physical resolution, you lose clarity. On a CRT, you can do it
because there is no 1:1 correlation between pixels and screen dots, but even
there you hit clarity limits because of the physical screen resolution.


It is like comparing the same 8X10 photograph printed on a 300 dpi laser printer verssus printed on a 1200 dpi laserprinter.
