HP w17e


The HP w17e is a 1440×900 native resolution, 17” monitor that I got recently as a replacement for my Mac mini’s ailing console.

I eventually had to fiddle around with display overrides to get the G4 mini to use the native resolution (which it can’t figure out on its own), and the resulting .plist (linked here) needs to be placed at:

/System/Library/Displays/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-756e6b6e/DisplayProductID-717

Under Snow Leopard on an Intel mini, it all seemed to just work, although I did use the Migration Wizard… Your mileage may vary.
