    Hi all,

    Can someone confirm that it's possible to use a Macbook Pro (1st generation) with the 30" ACD? The graphics card that's in the MBP looks like it should be able to do it, but some people have seemed a little doubtful that it'll work....

    Anyone actually doing this?

    I have a powerbook G4 and I was told I could use a ACD 30" with it. Your laptop is newer tech.

    works beautifully (in clamshell or extended desktop)

    there are several pictures of these setups in the "setup" threads

    Wonderful - thanks both of you...

    I'm currently thinking of getting myself a Mac Pro at some point, but in the mean-time, a very nice external monitor for my MBP will be more than welcome!
