    Has anyone used a macbook with a 24" dell? If so, how was the video performance? (widgets, etc).

    I am not concerned about games.

    You'll love it. I promise. There's nothing like two full size pages side by side.


    (as long as you swear you don't want to play games at native resolution)

    The only downside is that expose transitions aren't very smooth.

    Doesn't it need to be Dual-Link DVI to connect to 30" displays? (i.e. on the MBP)

    Notice the fellow who said that has a MBP. And the one who asked.. has a MBP too, but said "macbook" - so it's rather confusing as to just what the question is referring to - Pro or not.

    This is why the new naming convention is irritating for us who are used to saying ____book. We're too lazy to say that third syllable!

    The GMA950 will support up to the 24". I've had Macbooks and Dell GMA950-based laptops working fine on the 23" ACD and the 2407WFP.
