1366x768 mini 10HD owners + Mac OS X - your help needed - 01-31-2010, 08:09 PM
If you own the mini 10 with the HD option screen running OS 10.5.8 or 10.6.2 can you do a test for me?
Can you see if the rotate screens option is available by pressing (APPLE/COMMAND and OPTION/ALT while selecting the displays pref pane)? For more info on that please see this article: Mac 101: Screen rotation
I think the reason the rotate displays is diabled on the mini 9 is because the screen isn't (at it's smallest size) at least 768px. They made that a min. screen rez after an update at some point (I think) and I was hoping to read the screen vertical/portrait.

Not what you asked but.... I have a 24" widescreen as my second monitor on the mini and that offers rotation while the mini display does not.

I was under the impression that you can't run Mac OS X on the Mini 10, only the Mini 10v because of the graphics chipset. Regardless, it's strictly a Mac problem. If you have Windows 7 on the 1024x600 screen you can rotate. It has nothing to do with hardware restrictions, what happened was Apple made a decision for you. Check on any Apple laptop, you can't rotate the main screen, only secondary screens. They took out the rotate option because they figured people would rotate their screen and then not be able to rotate back, or that they would fumble with holding their laptop like a book and then drop it.
