12" powerbook has 4/3 screen, how to change resolution to widescreen for external?
Hey guys. I'm planning on getting a cheap 12" powerbook off eBay. The only thing that's holding me back is that it's not a widescreen lcd. I want to buy an external monitor anyways, but I want a widescreen external monitor. Is there any way to set the resolution on the powerbook to a widscreen one?
Thanks a lot.

Sure, all Macs have separate setting for each connected monitor. Not sure about the mirror mode, but in extended desktop mode you will be able to set maximum resolution on you ext. monitor - be it wide or not.
If I'm am not mistaken, you cannot however set anything higher than 1280x800 on a 30" monitor.
