I was wondering if a 2009 baseline MBP with the 9400m 2.26ghz and 8 gigs of ram. Could power a external display primarily being used for photoshop and illustrator.

The res would most likely be 1440x900 maybe 1080 though just depends......

The size (I don't think this matters) would be something between 19"-23".

Yes, it can, even a 2007 iMac and a 2008 MacBook can, and lots of other, older Macs.
The maximum output to an external display is 2560 x 1600 pixel.

You don't actually POWER an external display through the computer; both devices have their own power supply, so they won't ever fry (for that reason anyway.) :)
