Default Does the 1012 have square or non-square pixels? - 04-28-2010, 09:35 PM

I just read the sticky thread about how all 10V Minis with the 1024 x 600 screen have non-square pixels.

If you aren't familiar with this issue see here:

Does anyone know if the 1012 has this issue also?
I searched and can't figure out if the screen is the same or not.

The Mini 1012's screen is 223mm x 125mm. That's the value reported in the display's EDID, and my tape measure agrees. That's a 16:9 screen, but the 1024x600 resolution isn't 16:9. So, the pixels aren't square.

I expect many/most 10" 1024x600 netbooks have the same problem.
