    I've been using a square 19" that I got for my older OS9 desktop.

    Since Logic and other apps use a wide ratio screen and I've seen some 22" and 24" ones in the $180 - $300 range, I'm tempted to buy. How large a screen will my Macbook handle? Its a tad over a year old with the intel 950 video.

    I have paired my macbook with my 40" LCD TV and it works fine in both mirror and extended desktop...

    Although I'm sure I read somewhere that 23" was the max. for the 1920x1200 resolution?

    It's not physical screen size, but resolution that is the limiting factor. The MacBook can drive screens with a resolution of up to 1920x1200. Your typical 24" screen is 1920x1200, so you will be fine.
