im thinking about getting a 2001FP, i have a laptop and i am wondering if there is a way to find out if it can support 1600X1200 resolution, or if pretty much all do or something

not all do. look up the specs on the manufacturer's web site. you're looking for info regarding the EXTERNAL OUTPUT.

it dosent say anything about external output, maybe im missing something, a link to the specs is here (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?dlc=en&lc=en&product=331508&lang=en&cc=us &docname=c00249214#top)

maybe i should contact hp?

im pretty sure if i do ill end up talking to someone in india who knows less than i do tho, i used to work at staples and a guy came in and said that he called hp about his ipaq and they didnt know what an ipaq was /images/graemlins/confused.gif

is there any way i can find this out by looking at something on my system?

that link is just to glossy/sales specs, you'd want something more along the lines of a manual.

one easy way to find out would be to take it with you someplace and plug it into a monitor that can hack 1600x1200.

It should be fine. According to the HP manual (http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00246219.pdf) on page 25 it says

(1400 1050) active-matrix (TFT) LCD display
Hardware 3D acceleration, hardware DVD acceleration
External monitors up to 1600 1200 resolution, 16M colors, and at least 85 Hz
rate (only 60 Hz at 1400 1050). Refresh rate and clarity may vary depending on
monitor, resolution, and color depth
ATI Mobility Radeon graphics accelerator with 16-, 32-, or 64-MB DDR graphics
memory, 4x AGP graphics capability
Dual display capability (depends on operating system support)
