i have an LCD projector that is 1024x768 native, but can extrapolate
to 1280x1024. Hoping for at least something like that provided in a
device driver. Does your Toshiba do 1440x1050 natively or is it

Used to be true, but not on most of the laptops including cheap netbooks
that I have set up for the past few years... for example, my Fuji tablet
which has a 1024x768 screen, offers
....for the external monitor.

In addition, you can set the LCD to a higher resolution and then scroll
the additional real estate by moving the mouse past the screen borders.
As Steve indicates, as far as "simulating" a higher resolution in the
available real estate, haven't seen that either.

Yes, for an external monitor, but I specifically said "an LCD
notebook/tablet screen." The context of this is not about external

Just came back from BestBuy.
The first netbook i tried allowed 1152x864 on a tiny screen. Yes, it
wasn't the easiest to read, but it did extrapolate way past the tiny
physical dimensions of the screen.
A much larger laptop never went above 1280x800 and that had a
dedicated ATI video card.
