notebook - that's the Latitude at the moment (I think Vostro and XPS only
come with glossy WSXGA+ displays.).
What about running an external 19" monitor with 1280 x 1024 and the
notebook with 1680 x 1050?
I'm not sure, but I think I've read somewhere the GMA is limited to
2048x2048, so the above combination wouldn't work.
Can anyone confirm this?
