Do you think I will get used to this res and screen size? Or time to return PC now...?

Anyone tried this combo.

I've bought it for photo editing...Icons within image editing software are v.small. I can boost dpi setting from 96 up to 200, but this sometimes gives unwanted general formatting results...in other programs.

Have you tried reducing the monitor resolution?

  andy@ 17:13 01 Nov 06

Yes, thanks. Because it's less that the optimum native resolution (1920x1200) the text (screen) is less distinct - slightly fuzzy. This is what I was unaware of. I mistakenly thought it would be sharp at all lower resolutions...but apparently the smaller number of pixels are stretched to fit the screen.

You could try the download from Microsoft for cleartype and see if that helps. Don't have the link to it but I'm sure someone will.

Some info about notebook resolutions.

ClearType is part of the XP PowerToys lineup:

I sent it back in the end - now awaiting a 17" 1440x900. Decided against the 1920x1200 option this time, because I reckon, even at 17", this will be a tad hard on the eyes after a while.
