    I would like to get an additional 15" or even 17" LCD monitor to use with my 12" PowerBook.

    Any ideas as to what I should be looking for, in regards to what connection I need, and any other info?

    And is the maximum resolution 1024x768?

    Any and all help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank youse

    I have a 12 ibook with the firmware hack so i think its about the same. You have a mini vga port on the powerbook and you have VGA output adaptor so you need to look for a monitr with a VGA connector. As for the max resolution. I have a 17in CRT that runs native at 1024x768 and since thats the native its as high as it goes. accoridn to the preference panel it can go as high as 1920x1024. Hope this helps.
