    I got news for you, you've got many more problems to face than just the **** poor resolution of that screen. I have put some time into a "TallSkin" and resolution is key! I'm running 768x1024 on a 10.4" screen and some of my text is unreadable.

    Then you mention a convertible (I, too, have one) and now you're gonna need the closest thing to a transflexive screen as you can afford, otherwise direct sunlight (and sometimes just bright glare) is going to wash your screen out so bad its unreadable.

    The good news is with time and patience the screeshot you put together is doable. You could easily take the TallSkin from the above mentioned thread and modify it to keep your app up top and put any non-embedded RR screen on the bottom. If you ever intend to run embedded apps its probably better to run your app outside RR and set the location of RR using the general.ini file.
