    I run a 27" Apple Cinema Display at full resolution (2560x1440) without any problems whatsoever.

    As long as it's got displayport it should be relatively easy to get a MiniDP - DP cable and just plug it in and go :) If it uses Dual Link DVI it's a bit more complicated, but Apple do make an adapter for that:

    It just means you'll lose access to a USB port as well as the Thunderbolt port on the laptop, but you get it back on the adapter.

    EDIT: Just checked, it has DP, therefore all you'll need is this or something that does the same:
