View Full Version : MBA 1.8/64GB with ACD 24" LED

I am wondering - for those with experience with the Rev A MBA (1.8) does it work well with the 24" ACD - any slow downs or problems that I should be aware of?

Otherwise I am loving this MBA - the SSD makes it blazing fast, the screen is flawless, and no heat issues or fan issues :) - a fantastic MBA - so glad it is a top notch production model after hearing stories from others.

Unfortunately the Rev A MacBook Air does not support the 24" ACD. The Rev A has micro DVI, the ACD uses Mini DisplayPort.

What would be the best display option for the Original Macbook Air?

Um, the Intel graphics in your MBA wouldn't fare well even if it were hardware compatible.

I don't remember what the maximum resolution was with the Intel 3100 on the original MBA... does anyone? I think it may have went up to a 23" ACD, but that would certainly spell trouble for additional overheating problems.

I think your best bet may be like a 20" ACD from refurbished or used.
