    As the subject says, if someone where to buy a 2015 Macbook, could they hook up a 1080p external monitor and still perform okay? Also, for those you may have tried to do this, are you forced to do a mirrored display, or can you do an extended display as well (like a second monitor, with the first being the Macbook's built in display)?

    Well running it as an extended display is related to OSX, so yes you can do that.

    I don't see why it could not drive a 1080p display since it can push a retina display.
