    iBook Clamshell Hack Resolution?
    Hi-

    I've got a Graphite iBook Clamshell 366MHz, with 310MB memory, 30GB HDD and of course, the internal 12" screen.

    By default, this screen is only capable of 800x600 resoltuion. Is there any way to hack the available resolutions in OS X (I'm going to run 10.3) so that I can run 1024x768? Or is there any other hacks/mods to get this model to run at a higher resolution? I love it but 800x600 is kinda old-school. All sorts of other laptops with 12" screens can run at least 1024x768, why can't the iBook?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

    From what I understand it's a physical limitation of the LCD screen. Unfortunately there is no software hack I've seen to get a better screen resolution.

    You have to keep in mind that the machine itself is also somewhat "old school", being roughly 5 years old at this point. At the time, the iBook's 12" 800 x 600 display was quite good for an entry-level notebook.
