2 Intel processor based systems at Office Max, Frys, Staples, Circuit City,
Bets Buy etc.
One thing I have found out is that most of the store systems have the
minimum resolution on the LCD displays. In the wide 15 inch format 1280 x
800 seems common while in the wide 17 inch format 1440 x 900 is the rule.
These are very nice displays but my eyes are pretty good (well I do need
reading glasses) and I hate to scroll.
For me WSXGA+ or WSXGA would be better. The hogher resolution displays when
ordered are usually no more than $100 extra or 10 to 15 percent of the total
