x61 Screen Resolution

2008-07-01, 22:41 PM
Alright, I'm currently using a 17in CRT in 1280 x 1024. I've been thinking about getting the x61, but will it be hard adjusting to the low resolution? How is the screen for all of you x61 owners? Thanks!

My dad has an old Thinkpad 600 he still uses. It has a 12.1 inch display and the resolution is the same as the x61. Is this what I should expect?

The resolution isn't lower, but the screen is smaller.  I hook my x61 to a 22" widescreen for 1200x1600 resolution and use the 1200x1400 built in as extended mode.

As far as I can recall (but I might be wrong) 600 series have a 13.3" LCD, but that's not very far from what XGA looks like on a 12" LCD...

 

It takes some getting used to, granted, but most people find XGA on a 12" to be the perfect balance of everything (myself excluded)...given the size and resolution of your monitor, I believe that you'll fit in this group. 

 

Hope this helps. 

Cheers,

George
