The large graphics display offers excellent viewing, display
quality and desktop performance graphics. The
computer supports a Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) liquid
crystal display (LCD) displaying 24-bit true-color at
800x600 Super Video Graphic Array (SVGA) or 1024x768
eXtended Graphics Array (XGA) resolution.
2X AGP video graphic accelerator with 8 MB of video memory

The computer’s large display and multimedia capabilities are
great for giving presentations. If you prefer, you
can also connect an external monitor when giving
presentations. This computer supports simultaneous LCD
and CRT display. Simultaneous display allows you to control
the presentation from your computer and at the
same time face your audience. You can also connect other
output display devices such as LCD projection
panels for large-audience presentations.
The computer’s unique graphics chip takes advantage of
Windows 98 multi-display capability, allowing you to
extend your desktop to an external display device, such as
an external monitor projector. With this feature
enabled, you can move program windows to/from the computer
LCD and the external monitor.
The power management system incorporates an "automatic LCD
dim" feature that automatically dims the LCD
when the computer is powered by a battery pack to conserve
battery power. See “Power Management” on
page 26 for more information on power management features.
Opening and closing the display
To open the display, slide the display cover latch to the
left and lift up the cover. Then tilt it to a comfortable
viewing position. The computer employs a microswitch that
turns off the display (and enters standby mode) to
conserve power when you close the display cover, and turns
it back on when you open the display cover.
NOTE: If an external monitor is connected, the computer
turns off the display (but does not enter standby
mode) when you close the display cover.
To close the display cover, fold it down gently until the
display cover latch clicks into place.
To avoid damaging the display, do not slam it when you close
it. Also, do not place any object on top of the
computer when the display is closed.
