    So, I'm in the market for a monitor for my macbook (the earlier, white one). It's currently running 2 gb of ram, and I have some questions that i'm having some troubling finding answers to.

    BTW, I'm hoping to be able to play WOW using the new monitor seeing that it is very painful playing WOW on a 13 inch laptop. And I want to make sure the monitor will not make WOW lag.

    1. Will my monitor be able to run on a monitor that is 22'', 24", or even larger? Will it support the resolutions of it? Because someone told me that I would be unable to run a crystal clear display on anything larger than a 22''. Is this true?

    2. The monitors I'm looking at are the hp w2207h (22") and if I am able to run its larger 24" version of the exact same model, I would love to do that. The other monitor is the Samsung 2223 BW, I think, or is there a later model? And some of the newer dells. I'm looking to stay in the $300/$200 range.

    3. I'm not sure exactly what it means to be able to run a certain resolution, I can see run as meaning able to project it, btu if I'm gonna get a monitor, the resolution needs to be as clear as it is on my macbook.

    4. Any other monitor recommendations are greatly appreciated! Please do tell me about other good monitors.

    Thank You Very Much!!!!!!

    Your notebook supports up to 1920x1200 resolution, or a 23"/24" display. I purchased the Samsung 2443BWX, a 24" display. Works great and I get optimal resolution.

    Do not get a 22" Display, these are typically very subpar compared to their 24" counterparts. I also wouldn't consider anything less then a 1920 by 1200 resolution.
