If I buy the 24" display, will it have a clunky enlarged resolution or will it look great? Why does it look so bad in the store?

Thoughts and comments welcome--please!
Native resolution on a 15" MacBook Pro is 1440 x 900. Native resolution on a 24" Apple Cinema Display is 1920 x 1200.

As far as the external 24" display. It's not just about the resolution of the display that is helpful...but also in "extended desktop" mode (versus mirroring mode) the external display greatly increases your overall computer desktop real estate.
