    Hey when you get it setup can you tell me how the macbook looks on it? I will be using it mostly for movies.

    I hope to get the cable this weekend.

    Mine is the full 1080p 22 inch, I think there are about 3 models out there. I think it should the the 1900x1200 no problem.

    Thanks

    I just bought a 42" Vizio from Walmart and it's pretty nice (and very inexpensive). My biggest complaint is the speakers are terrible and it came with 1 dead pixel in the lower right corner. It's impossible to notice unless you are inches away from the screen.

    Definitely worth the purchase so far.

    i got the 37 and i am in love with it.

    i got it for 600 bucks and it is 1080p. I have tried finding a 37 LCD in 1080p for under 600 and couldnt. A great buy for your Xbox or looking up the mac.

    I bought it for my bedroom so I could hook my MBP up to it. Its 720p but I have a bigger plasma tv thats 1080p and I dont see too much of a difference.

    19" Sony

    I have the Sony 19" KDL-19M4000. It runs at 1440 x 900 resolution, decent picture when connected to my MacBook (it has a VGA connector). This TV can be had for about $300 or less now. The TV picture itself is 720p, excellent quality.
