Interesting but native is only 800x480. Makes using OSX a pain since buttons will be off the bottom of the screen.

So it's not 1920 by 1080?

"800 x 480, up to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels"

The web site show more specs. It basically will accept a higher resolution signal but down convert. It is designed to be a TV, not a computer display. Might not matter depending on the application. I guess if you drive it at 1080p then video will be OK and graphics will be distorted but usable for showing all the buttons.

People have been putting that display and others
connected to their mini's in cars for years. Philip
lilliput makes several TouchScreen versions. Drivers
for the Mac are available. eMail the companies who
sell the display and ask if they have Mac drivers for it
before you buy it. That would be WAY COOL!!!
