1080p?

Looks like a max of 900 pixels to me.

Cool nonetheless! :thumbup:

the sticker right under the bluray says 1080p :shrug:

i wonder if there is a built in microphone, im DLing camfrog right now to use the webcam.
the quality is fuckin awesome.

the keyboard is amazing, the keys are spaced out pretty far away from eachother making it much easier to type really fast

That amazon link says the laptop has a native resolution of 1600x900 which is obviously less than 1920x1080.  Apparently they think just because it has a Blu Ray player which can play 1080p media, this warrants a 1080p sticker even though the laptop's screen can't fully display it.

Great choice. While most of Sony's products are shit, their newer laptops seem to be pretty solid.

I'm jealous.

From the Amazon description:
Quote:

This Sony VAIO has a 16.4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels (native 720p for high-definition viewing).



Kinda misleading to label it 1080p then. But it looks like a damn fine laptop!

Looks damn expensive.. You could have gotten that spec (if not better) for cheaper than that. I'd of gone with an acer laptop off ebay and put the 320gb hdd and 4gb ram in myself (works out cheaper)... Thats what I did with this laptop :smile:

A 16" 1080P screen is pretty much pointless anyway.
