My personal 2.3Ghz 15" MBP A1211 has a standard 1440x900 res LCD. My company recently ordered a new 15" MBP for me. It's not the newest one piece body LED MBP, but it's the newest model of the previous generation. This new MBP is the same generation as my personal MBP. However, it has a 1920x1200 LCD ! It's super sharp. So I wonder if I can somehow upgrade my personal MBP to a 1920x1200 LCD. Are there any companies offering such upgrade? If yes, how much is the upgrade? Do I need to upgrade my current ATI Radeon X1600 chipset at the same time?

Isn't the 1920x1200 screen only available on the 17" model? We have one at work and even on the 17" I find the pixels to be a bit too small for my liking - I was constantly squinting to make things out.

Would like to see pics, since Apple has not put anything higher than 1440 x 900 on any of their 15" MBP's.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
