    iBook screen vs PowerBook Screen.
    I went to CompUSA to look at the iBook today, and this is what I found. The screen on 15" PowerBook has a clearer screen than on the 14" iBook. Why is that?

    Is that because of the video chip? or the LCD itself is better on the PowerBook? On the website, they are both listed as TFT LCD. I mean, it's a lot clearer than on the iBook. weird...

    This is true in part that the eye simply can't resolve the smaller pixels of the 15 inch display which would make it look crisper.
