(Jan 12/12) Better PCs, or at very least an increase of the current screen resolution.

Library response: Thanks for your comment. Actually, the PCs over in Thode are brand new, having just been deployed over the past few weeks. They have Intel Core i5 processors and 4GB of RAM. That's a pretty solid machine. Not flashy, but capable. With regard to higher screen resolution, I'd be curious what you want to do for which the resolution is insufficient. Part of the issue with upping resolution, of course, is that one size does not fit all. In other words, what works for your eyes might not work for someone else. Off the top of my head, I believe those machines are set to 1280x1024, which is pretty standard for a 4:3 monitor. (Jan 12/12)

I did some further checking, and there are still six old PCs over in Thode, so you may have been using those. They are slated for replacement within a few weeks. Also, the stock screen resolution for our PCs is, in fact, 1024x768. That is likely lower than typical, but part of the issue is that we set that centrally, and given that we have a variety of displays deployed, we have to select a resolution that will work on nearly any display, hence such a generic and fairly low resolution. askeyd (2012-01-13)
