You can put me down for a yes.  I asked because I have a PC laptop that only 
has an 800x600 screen, but it will do 1024 if you connect to an external 
monitor.  I also have an iBook which does 1024x768 and I use this more 
often, I've just been too lazy to try to build an OSX version of the alphas 
using the CVS code.  Maybe it's time I did this.
