is there any way I can get my clamshell ibook to display at 1024x768 or higher resolution ? Be it a downloadable program or a system hack.. how can I do it ?
i'd like to know as well, but i think it's to do with the dot pitch (as it were) of the display so 800X600is the max. (somebody please prove me wrong), besides i it were possible i'd di it to mine too, i am very interested...
Yeah, basicly there is no way to do this. You can make a display have a smaller resolution by making 4 or more pixles seem like one, but there is no way to have half a pixle. CRT's are capable of doing this since the size of a pixle on the screen changes with each resolution.
Those hinges must be very strong to be able to hold that thing on!
Wait until you see the battery
I doubt that Apple would even include hinges. Just straight bolt the screen on and bolt the 'book to your lap/desk.
. . . what they used to call scrolling around a reasonably sized desktop thru the periscope of an SE :ebc: . . . or the tiny monitors standard for NuBus/PDS Macs of all but higher end DTP and CAD shops of that pixel-impoverished era, IIRC.
If you NEED a higher resolution in order to run a specific program (like when Adobe decided that my 2300c's 640x480 LCD didn't push enough pixels to bother supporting somewhere around Illustrator 6.0) such a hack can be a major advantage ofr using a PB in the field.
IIRC, it was usually coupled with a Video card (add'l VRAM), but I think there might have been some software hacks.
I also think this discussion took place over in MacAch . . . :? . . . not sure though . . . IIRC they might have been talking about interpolated displays of higher resolutions on dinky LCDs for the same purposes mentioned above.
Sorry I can't dig any more up out of the haze . . .
p.s. you aren't talking about getting that res on an external monitor are you?
