    I'm thinking about buying a macbook to replace my current windows desktop and just wanted some advice.
    I would like to keep my monitor/mouse/keyboard and connect it to my macbook for when I am working at my desk - my question is this:
    At the minute my monitor is running at a resolution of 1280x1024. Will I have to decrease this resolution to be able to connect it to my macbook. Also it should be noted that my monitor isn't widescreen whereas the macbook is. Will this cause any problems?

    It will work fine. I use my MacBook with a 20" widescreen at 1680x1050.

    You can choose the resolution for each monitor.
