There was a guy from Amazon at the San Jose meeting who'd transplanted an 
ultra-high-resolution 15" LCD into his MacBook Pro, after the original one 
had cracked.  I _think_ it was 1280x2048, but I'm not sure I'm remembering 
accurately.  The pixels were too fine for me to see, no matter how close 
I looked.  He said the connector and bolt-positions were identical, but 
it had required that he compile a new driver before it worked.
