How well does a maxed 12" PB run the 23" Display?

    I'm thinking of getting a maxed 12" powerbook and want to get a second display for home use. It will be one of the new aluminum cinema displays.

    My question is how well does the 12" run either the 20" or the 23". Will it be faster with the 20".

    How much better would a 15" powerbook run these displays?

    should be fine.. the possible output resolution of the 12" is more than the required resolution of the 23".

    gaming? not gonna happen.

    My 12" PB runs both those resolutions on an external monitor well, and it only has 32MB VRAM (16MB for each screen). Yours will have 64MB VRAM so should cope even better.

    Here on My Mac(s) in my house in the USA!
    Mine works fine with a 23 HD and looks good too...
