    So, I'm thinking of buying the basic 13" i5 model and was wondering how well it can handle external 27" 1920x1080 monitor on tasks like 1080p video?
    I'v asked this before the update, but now that some people have their hands on these computers, I thought I might ask if someone has some first hand experience.

    Thanks in advance!

    On the fence
    My old Aluminum MacBook can handle 1080p video on my TV without an issue, so you'll be fine with the new model.

    If you mean viewing 1080p it shouldn't be a problem at all. Editing on the other hand might be a bit harder considering the graphics card.

    Yeah, I was talking about viewing, not editing, should've made it clear! :)

    But thanks alot then, guess I'll be picking one up!
