    Howdy all,
    well i got a new question ;-)
    What about attaching an external monitor on the IMac 17'' ?
    Well certainly I read the following on the Apple Site:
    But nothing is said on the resolution on the external monitor, nor on stretching the monitor rather than mirroring it.
    not beeing able to strech the monitor will not hold me off from buying, but it s like a little feature i d like to see.
    TIA

    The display will be mirrored not streched or extended....There is a hack tho to enabled the extnded desktops on the imacs. You do it at your own risk but heres the link, readi t all thru once before you do it. Hes a really nice guy too, i've emailed himm several times with "out of the box" questions

    Its the same limit as with any apple product so I think its whatever the 23" dispaly is right now, It supports a wide variety of resolutions tho. Unless your screen is extremly huge I think this will et u pick most any display size or atleast thats how it works on my ibook
