    Hi guys, I got kind of a noob question here. I'm looking at getting a refurbished model of the high end 15" MBP, and I'm wondering if it's possible to hook it up to my 32" tv for gaming when I want some extra screen. Will this work or will there be an issue with the machine not being able to pump the graphics out to that big of a screen?

    I would imagine it would work fine ;)

    Cool. I was going to get the baseline iMac but I would rather have the portability of a MBP and plus it has 1g gfx card and 250g more hard drive. I am going to be playing witcher 2, which is insanely CPU and GPU intensive, and hopefully it will work through my tv so I got a bigger screen. :)

    it will work. if you're running something that big at (i'm guessing 1080p resolution) it might not look that great, just a warning... but it should work fine.

    The problem I have with the iMac personally, is you can get a Macbook Pro, and a couple of external monitors if needed, then you have the power and portability ;D
