Hey Guys,

I am considering getting one of the new 24" LCD monitors and wanted some advice from anyone that might be running one.

Basically I just wanted to know if the MBA runs the monitor okay. I know there were instances of the rev A over heating running youtube etc, so just wanted to confirm that the Rev B can run movie, youtube etc on the 24"

Cheers

Ummm, that thread is about hooking up a superdrive through the 24" LCD to a MBA. Yes it works, and the guys MBA was in the shop getting repaired.

I know the Superdrive can be hooked up.

I am more concerned if the MBA has any performance issues running the screen over long periods of time, especially videos/movies etc

Also would like to get the opinion of a few users.

The reason I am asking is cause i read heard some guy in the Apple store complaining that his MB was struggling to run the display.

It won't matter for me, cause even if i do want one, there are none in sight here in the UK, probably looking mid jan..... Shopping online is 2 weeks before they ship :(

Oww well back to saying i want one for xmas....
