Ooh!  You can bet a 1600x1200 screen on a laptop now?  Cool.  :)  One of
the reasons I've never had much use for laptops, besides their cost and
short bettery life, has been the relatively low-resolution screens.  I
had an acute case of lust at one point over a HP Omnibook 6000 ....  it
was a *sweet* machine, except that the highest-resolution screen you
could get was 1024x768.

(I was also told later that its ATI Rage Mobility M1 chipset sucked
 goose eggs through drinking straws for 3D.)
