    It doesn't make any sense to switch to a higher resolution, as the LCD can only do ntsc, which is around 720 x 480. If you do run at a higher res, you are relying on your video card to decide how to scale it down to ntsc. Some do a good job, most don't.

    It might be scaling down the resolution, but you are still going to see a 800x600 windows screen rather than a 640x480. That mean's everything will be smaller just as it is when you bump up the res on a monitor.
    Open your display settings, change the res to 640x480 then go browse the web for half a hour. Now into 800x600 and do the same.
    Come back to me once you've been converted

    It is a totally different thing though. There are only so many pixels int the LCD, and going to a higher res just means you are going to be throwing some of them out.

    It sounds like you aren't going to be convinced, but trust me, I have seen the results. 640x480 looks much better on a TV than 800x600. I have done it with many different video cards. I work for a company that does professional digital video software and hardware.

    (and my home computer always runs 1600x1200 :-))

    It's better than I was expecting! Not bad at all...
    Thanks for those, the last image link is wrong (but I found it tho).
    I guess with the screen streched to full size, it would probalby just fine for me, rather than going for the xenarc.

    Last update. Tried connecting the monitor to my roommate's Nvidia Geforce 3 and got some awesome results. Turns out, the Nvidia image is much better than my ATI Radeon 7500's image. Here's the pic:
    (NOTE: The reason why there is an ATI TV program open is because his computer also has an ATI TV-Wonder PCI card in it. This card has no effect on the quality of the image.)

    Pute, that last one looks awesome! Too bad I'll be using an AIW card in my car, I thought that'd be the best option! rats.

    that last image looks impressive for a non VGA screen the 7 in touchscreen option is starting to look more reasonable.

    can you try to give us a heads-on view (straight heads on) of the screen in the different resolutions, from the exact same camera and screen position (to allow us to better judge it, since all the pictures are at different angles it makes it hard to judge).

    that'd be awesome if you could do that.
