    That's nice to hear? Or is it a problem because your native screen resolution is 1920 x 1200? A little more info please!

    Like I said, its cutting the top part of my screen and button. I cannot see the top apple bar, nor see the dock. I can see a small piece of the dock.
    Thanks

    Um, ok. You need to provide info for us to help you. :)

    What monitor do you have? The native resolution of a 23" ACD (or probably any other 23-24" monitor) is 1920x1200. Do you have your MP connected to a 1080p capable HDTV or something, with display mirroring turned on? Normally, 1920x1080 isn't a selectable resolution, but I've seen mirroring force screens into odd resolutions to fit to the lowest resolution of the two.

    The 24" big boy Dell is slightly taller than Full HD.

    1920 *1200 vs 1920 * 1080.

    Yeah, the native resolution of the Dell display is 1920 x 1200, not 1080 like a TV. It's a 16:10 screen, not 16:9.

    Unless we're talking about some sort of Dell LCD TV. Did they ever make a 24" TV?
