    I have my PB connected to an old (we're talking ten year old) ADI Microscan Pivoting Monitor, which has the physical ability to pivot 90 degrees clockwise. Is there any way I could use this rotational feature with OSX?

    this tells you how.
    The first paragraph is all you need to know.. just remember how to rotate it back! :)

    I tried holding down the option key as I opened System Preferences and Display, and I didn't get the Rotate button. I have a 12' PB 1.5 GHz with 512 of RAM.

    you need two things

    1 - tiger
    2- a mac with an ATI GPU, not nvidia, and from the rumors I have heard not intel's Heap Of S*** integrated

    I would love to be proven wrong about intel integrated's rotate ability - anybody with a MB tried it?

    wow, that's very interesting - so the option to rotate absent from the system prefs in os X? it sounds like intel integ graphics can do it, but not with the osx driver???

    hmm i wonder if it might be fixed in the next tiger revision???:) or maybe leopard:(
