Can the Macbook drive a large screen (ie 24", 1900x1200ish)?

Double checking this. I've heard the visuals slow down when driving an external screen, particularly a big one.

(Dangit Apple, just put a cover under the hard drive in the MBP to make it easy to change!!!)

Okay, thanks. I'm going to be mainly using my laptop with an external screen (at LEAST 8 hours a day), so slow/laggy video is not good. :(

I find it's only laggy with an extented desktop, it seems to be fine at 1680 x 1050 when I run it in clamshell mode with a keyboard and mouse.

I hope this helps :apple:
