Hi, does anyone know if a regular iBook G4 1.2ghz 12" can run a nonApple VGA monitor through a mini vga to vga connection?

I have no idea, but saw a monitor I liked at Fry's and wondered if I could run the larger monitor off the iBook?

of course. but there's a limit to the resolution supported, and also if I remember correctly the iBook can't (by default) span desktops vs. mirroring them.

Not sure if it applied to the G4 (sheesh it's been a while for me), but you might want to look that up.
