There are three netbooks that I’m aware of that currently have screen resolutions higher than 1024 x 600 pixel. The HP Mini 2140, Dell Inspiron Mini 10, and Gigabyte Touch Note T1028M are all available with 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel displays.
Not all of these computers are available around the world yet though. You can order the HP and Dell netbooks in the US,but the Gigabyte convertible tablet style laptop isn’t available here yet. But it’s expected soon. Still, the higher resolution HP and Dell computers have been shipping for a few weeks, so it’s about time we start to see some pictures of them, right? Fortunately MyHPMini Forum member Inconnu picked one up and snapped a bunch of photos which he uploaded to Picasa. It’s hard to tell much from the pictures, but it looks like the 1366 x 768 pixel display has a lot more room for web pages and other applications than the standard netbook screen. The text is awfully sharp and some users say that it can be a bit hard to read if you have less than stellar eyesight. But you can always adjust the DPI and other font settings to try to make the netbook a little easier to read.
Meanwhile, the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 with the higher resolution screen, which was only available in the US at first is now showing up in Europe. Blogeee reports that you can find it at Dell’s French web site. The higher resolution display will set you back an extra 20 Euros over the base cost of the netbook. That means you can get an Inspiron Mini 10 with a 1366 x 768 display for as little as 369 Euros, making it the cheapest mini-laptop available with that display resolution.
