    Hey everyone, was looking to get a display for my Notebook (see signature) and i was at first, contemplating the 27" ACD but for that price i can get a brand new Samsung 32" HDTV for £449 and an XBOX 360 (getting back into gaming recently) with a few games and XBOX Live for less! So my only question is, does it matter what screen size HDTV i get (as long as it has HDMI input) or does the compatibility depend on the number of pixels? Might be a stupid question but i want to make sure lol

    As every current Mac since 2008 at least can output 2560 x 1600 pixel onto an external display, it can also output 1920 x 1080 pixel onto any TV, regardless of its size, even if the TV would be 90".

    Take a look at Monoprice or at this (http://store.apple.com/us/product/H1824ZM/A?mco=MTY3ODQ5OTY), but if you want audio, make sure the adapter supports audio, as the 2010 Macs support audio over MDP.
    You may also need to get an HDMI cable, as the adapter is quite short.
