    Hey everyone,

    Just ordered a 2015 MacBook Pro and I want to run a monitor to it some of the time. I know the native resolution in the MacBook Pro is 2560 x 1600.

    Will I have any problems whe I connect this screen resolution to a 25 inch 1080 monitor?

    For example will text be blurred? Windows too small, not displaying correctly. Etc.

    Thanks for the help!

    i have a 2015 MBP and the resolution is 2880x1800 and it is fine - however you must have the non retina monitor? it should work, just won't be as sharp

    Yes, non retina. Wanted to make sure it will work fine before I get it. Thanks

    Non-retina? 13inch? Well the resolution will be 1080p, if that's the native resolution of the external display it shouldn't be too bad, but it will depend on the size of the display as well on how stretched out it may be.

    Of course it will work. And yes, the external monitor will appear blurry in comparison to the built-in one, because it has lower pixel density.
