Default S230 - Enlargement of photos

I am going to buy the Canon Power Shot S230 very soon. One question that I have is if anyone has taken a picture, with the large and superfine mode, to a photo store and got it enlarged to a 11"X14"? :? ? :? ? :? I went to look at this camera in a few stores and when I ask the salesperson this question I have got a different answer each and every time. So could anyone with this camera please answer this question for me please. Thank you.

I have made S200 (2 MP) shots and made 13 x 19 Epson 1280 prints that are excellent -- from crops! Even sold some. However, in general, they are limited to 8 x 10 maximium. It just depends on the target, including tripod and all those things. Every camera seems unique, and mine had a very good lens and sensor.

My S230 (3 MP) produces less vivid snaps, that blowup better -- more pixels.

Also, of equal importance, would be any software you might use for expansion... Photoshop bicubic is good to 2x, but I often use Genuine Fractals (*very* good software plug-in) that is good to 6x. Why the limits? I have felt that using GF to get about 50%+ of the target pixels, and using PS bicubic to finish *seems* to look best to me. I also may use QImage, the print processor, which comes with several excellent interpolation procedures.
