Quick Wii question

I was under the impression the Wii could only display in standard definition, but I was at Gamestop earlier and I saw a demo unit on a widescreen display, looked like 720p, didn’t seem distorted. Can the Wii display in HD? Or am I just an idiot? Thanks!

The Wii supports up to 480p, sorry.

OK, idiot it is. Thanks!
