New Powerbook Display ISSUE !! @[email protected]

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014

Support for resolutions of 1680 x 1050 (native), 1440 x 852, 1280 x 1024, 1280 x 800, 1152 x 720, 1024 x 768, 1024 x 640, 800 x 500, 720 x 480 and 640 x 480 at 16:10 aspect ratio

Okay soo....

Supposing you are playing a game on your new powerbook.. And the native resolution is just too high to allow decent frame rates.. (which I suspect will happen when I am playing WoW)

Well, the new second highest resolution is 1440 x 850. As opposed to the last rev's 1440x900. So, in fact, unless I play at 1680x1050, I will be LOSING screen real estate in-game. @_@..

Didn't see that one coming!

And this is BESIDE the fact, it isn't 16:10 as they state. It's 16:9.46666667. Which makes for a distorted image, seeing as the display's physical dimensions are no different than the last rev....

HURRAY!! -_-

    And yes, the same holds true for the 15"..

    1280x854 -> 1280x800.
