1680x1050, just like my desktop.
The sad part is that it turns out that my Laptop Graphics card is MUCH better than my desktop one............
Guess I will have to fix that sometime.

Hi guys!
New guy here interested in win7.
I've stumbled upon this thread and i find it funny when people talk about macs being "better built". Last year, my gf bought a white macbook and the case kept cracking. Some of my friends from schools who had a mac also had this problem with the aluminum case as well as safari crashing when multitasking with photoshop and of course "revit architecture"(my major is architecture).
And this makes me ask whoever owns a mac in here, how can you say it is good quality and better built than a dell/HP when my gf's macbook has had more issues and more visits to the apple store than my hp laptop?
I guess if you want value for your money on a mac, a refurbished unit is the best option(macbook pro 15" 2.4Ghz with free snow leopard upgrade(when it comes out) for 1300). In any event, I also heard Windows is solving the memory hog problems with vista which would ultimately increase battery life(yay for us!). If that's the case, then my 1.7 Ghz core duo 15" widescreen will last me for a few years as i keep multitasking without any issues.
I own an hp dv6000 series with no crashes and no viruses or spywares(What websites do you guys visit that get spywares and viruses?) since late 2005 and I'm typing on this laptop at the very same moment.
Now, that i was looking for an upgrade, I was considering snow leopard since the OS is stable but multitasking is still bad even on the macbook pro, i've discovered windows 7 release and have been following up until now.

Onto the main topic: Both companies bash each other and fanboys from both sides will always come out to defend each, even though there are MANY problems that many mac-users and windows-users won't tell you yet they praise the OS like there is no other. But this is better for us! More competition, lower prices.

im definitly not a mac fanboy, since i have 1 macbook pro unibody (definitly the best build quality ever), 3 current gen pcs (built by me), another 3 old pcs, and 2 notebooks. (the point here, is that i have more PC than mac XD)

i had a white macbook in the past... it was nice, but my gf just bought a compaq cq40-305, and it has a better lcd panel than what my white macbook had :P (it seems cheap lcd panels have gotten better overtime :P)

now, build quality of the unibody family, is unbeatable, then comes sony, and now dell with their new studio and XPS (by new, i mean the newer models).

the white mac was never that nicely built.

pd: my core i7 with 6gb runs like a dream on windows 7, its SUCH a pain when i have to go to work, and i have to use a pentium 4 3.06 ghz with HT there :P

Anecdotal evidence means nothing. I'm in the middle of trying to get an overheating hp tablet fixed that's been sent for repairs 4 times in 3 months for a host of issues, spent hours talking to customer service, not able to understand their accents at all, only to have them straight out lie to me, treat me like an idiot, case reps not calling back when they say they will, it's hell. I'm considering taking it to a small claims court if it can't be resolved.

Apple support has always been excellent and courteous to me.

I don't really think anybody in this thread is being an apple fanboy. Apple has its faults. Microsoft has its own. PC OEMs in my experience absolutely suck. They are to blame for most of PC problems. This HP tablet I referred to just had its HDD re-imaged by HP, and half of HP's own software doesn't even work correctly. How they became #1 baffles me.

The Get a Mac campaign has exaggerated, but many of the scenarios are absolutely true, and it's not all about crapping on PCs. Several ads have demonstrated all sorts of features on a Mac.

in terms of apple vs microsoft, a viewpoint of the uk market.

I have never seen a tv advert for either company, maybe microsoft years ago but certianly not recently.

I see apple macs a lot in tv shows and movies.

I dont know of anyone personally who uses a apple mac, dont know of any companies either. It is said here that vista's main competitor was actually windows XP, since XP was so good that people will see no reason to upgrade.
