I've been searching various internet sites that sell MacBook Pros, but I can't find any that sell the 17" MB Pro with the high res screen. Is Apple my only option to get this laptop with a high res screen, or am I just missing it in my searches?

Last I checked, the only screen option you have on the Macbook Pros is whether you want glossy or matte. I've never heard of a resolution option...

If u want the high-res screen, u either have to order online from Apple, my local apple store had them. You can also get them from MacMall.

I think that's pretty crappy too, considering there are 15" notebooks that have 1920X 1200 res. >_>"

I should have been more specific, but 05GT answered my question.

Amazon, for example, has the 17" MacBook Pro (which is what I want) with the 1680 x 1050 resolution screen but not the 1920 x 1200 hi res screen. This seems to be the case for every website that sells the 17" Macbook Pro. I would like to buy from Amazon rather than Apple because they have a 24 months-no interest payment plan. Too bad: I'll just have to pony up all of the cash now.

From the Apple Store:

About display resolution
"The standard 1680 x 1050 resolution on the 17-inch MacBook Pro offers as many pixels as the 20-inch Apple Cinema Display.

By upgrading to the high-resolution 1920x1200 pixel display, you'll enjoy a workspace with 30% more pixels than the standard model, or as many pixels as the 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. You'll have more space for palettes and windows, and you can watch 1080 HD video content at full resolution.

The high-resolution display also offers LED backlighting, which delivers instant full-screen brightness and greater power efficiency compared to standard displays — up to an additional 30 minutes of battery life for wireless productivity."
