    Simple question, I tried to find an anwser but without any luck..

    Can the 13" MBP drive this display at 1920x1200 ?
    Is there going to be a lag under Photoshop or Lightroom ?

    Thanks !

    The lag depends on the resolution of the images you work with.

    I have the 17" MBP with the 9400M and as it has the same resolution, I think you will be fine.

    I use 12MP RAW images with LR and PS, and though it can be slow sometimes, it is more than bearable, and I'm quite impatient when it comes to computations.

    I use a 24" acd with my 13" mbp everyday. It's awesome. I use photoshop CS4, aperture, etc with no lag. Could stand to be a little faster, but I chose to get the 2.26. Oh well. works for me

    That's good to know ;-)
    I just bought the ACD yesterday in the refurb section ! $700cad instead of $1000.. Pretty good deal !

    Problem is that now I'll need a keyboard and the mStand.. that's another 150 bucks :-(

    Should I get a magic mouse too or a Logitech Nano Rx will be ok ? I don't know if I'll miss the multitouch..

    Is this only for right-handed people?

    I have both the Logitech and Magic Mouse and much prefer the Magic Mouse due to its touch pad and bluetooth.
