    Hi,

    I am looking at getting one of the new 13" macbook pro's.

    Can anyone answer this question for me. Using the optional Displayport to VGA adapter can anyone tell me what the supported resolutions are that it will output?

    thanks

    I think the maximum is 1920x1200 so it'll run all resolutions lower than that.

    From http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/specs-13inch.html:
    What you can actually use will be limited by what the external display can handle.

    That's the resolutions the internal screens can handle and has nothing to do with what the OP is asking.

    The resolution outputted will be dependent on the external you are using, you should be able to use whatever resolution you intend to.

    I read the post you quoted more carefully. The 2nd quote dealt with exactly what you're describing.

    But VGA can't do 2560x1600... For that you need MDP to dual-link DVI.

    As I said in my post above, 1920x1200 is the highest VGA can do okay. Though it has no limit, bigger than that will be unclear etc.

    Get DVI if you can, VGA is analog crap

    So the MDP to HDMI cable could produce 1080p HD?
