    Does anyone know who manufactures the touchscreen and its actual resolution?

    I made the perhaps incorrect assumption that the TD Ameritrade advertisement tag on the Yahoo Finance page will be consistently sized across platforms (at 100% zoom).

    It looks like this:
    Code:
    <object width="120" height="60" ...>...</object>
    I made a similar assumption about the "YAHOO! Finance" logo which is specified as 120px x 34px.

    I then did the following:
    1. Took a camera shot of the car
    2. Overlayed my desktop IE rendering at ~50% opacity on top of it
    3. Rotated and resized the camera shot until the "YAHOO! Finance" logo aligned "reasonably well" with the desktop IE rendering
    4. Measured (roughly) additional pixels on the left and right of the desktop rendering until I looked like "about enough" do align with the width of the car rendering

    By that metric I get 2400 pixels horizontally. I have no idea if that's at all accurate. But perhaps it's a start.

    When you don't trust your numbers, try a different method...

    TLDR: 1920x1200

    Both of the 'sreen test sizes' require you to have zoom set to 100%. Otherwise they try to render on a different number of pixels.
