Hello,

I have a Macbook Pro I bought new in June 2008 (Not Uni-body). It's a 15 inch with the standard options. I want to make a desktop setup on a budget and I'm wondering if my MBP will fill up this display at the complete resolution (1920 x 1080) and if it will function completely with the peripherals on the monitor.

http://tinyurl.com/lsadtn - Here is the display I'm looking at. Seems like a good deal, but I haven't done a lot of shopping around. I don't do graphic design and as I said, I'm on a budget, so the Apple displays are out of the question.

Thanks!
Tim

You can use any monitor you like, as the MBP supports up to 2560 x 1600 pixel on an external resolution, which can be looked up here (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/stats/macbook-pro-core-2-duo-2.5-15-early-2008-penryn-specs.html).
That MBP has a DVI port.

Also the webcam might not work with your Mac, but use MRoogle or Google to verify that.

And you can use normal links in this forum, so no need for tinyurl here.
