i connected my ibook to my gateway lcd 17" monitor, and it just doesn't look very nice at all. i dont think it's the monitor, the gateway monitor looks good when its connected to the gateway tower. my question is, could it be the monitor? the adapter that comes with apple ibooks to let u connect allows only 24-bit collor, is this the reason that the picture looks kina weak? i was considering buying a imac17" maybe 20", but then i thought maybe i can just buy a 20" nice lcd display bc i dont run too many intensive app's, but now i'm reconsidering buying a display and having to buy an iMac instead of a new display, bc the adapter only performs in 24-bit color and its crappy. does anyone else see this?
