    iMac 20" Monitor - HD Ready?
    Hey guys & girls.

    Just a quick question,

    Is my 20" iMac's monitor HD ready? I can't see anywhere on the Apple site that says whether it is or not?

    Regards,

    Chris :mac:

    It is 1680x1050 which means it is 720p (1080i) ready...

    HD is just a higher resolution than your current TV. So when you play a DVD on your computer, it enlarges it so that it fills your monitor, which has many more pixels than a TV. That's why DVDs look better on TVs than monitors.

    HD films and HD TV programmes are recorded at a higher resolution (1080 pixels) so they look better. You will still need a Blue Ray or HD player though to run those discs on your Mac though.

    Look for trailers on the Apple site - you can watch HD trailers now.
