    1,280 x 720 pixels or 1920 x 1080 and a digital connection = HD ready (I think anyway)

    Remember HD ready and HD compatible are not the same thing.

    does it say hd ready or compatible?

    At 15" I don't think you would ever be able to tell anyway!

    HD ready requires 720 horizontal lines, which 1024x768 would qualify, were the aspect ratio 16:9 (rectangular pixels)...however it is 4:3 so with a widescreen feed (which all HD content is) then it wouldn't have those 720 horizontal lines anymore (and the picture will be goddamned tiny).

    I'd take issue with that HD claim.
