    What resolution do you normaly run on your MacCar?

    In developing a usable GUI, I would like to know what resolutions most people with 7" screen use?


    800x480 or 800x600?

    I personaly run 800x600, I find it readable, and I don't have to worry about dialog and settings box's running off screen.

    I run an 8" screen at 800X600. My friend runs a 7" screen. What looks good at 8" doesn't look so hot at 7".

    800x480. Stretching the resolution would just be immoral.

    More accurately, it's an 8.4", as super-fly's is. It looks terrific.

    How did you get the res? When I hooked my Lilli up to my PB, there was no 800x480 option which is supposed to be the native res.

    I'm running 1280 x 768 at 60Hz on my 7" Xenarc. The LCD recognizes it as 1024 x 768. No image stretching.

    Is that Lili a wide screen one? If not, you probably won't get that option.
