Ok, I'm considering buying an iBook after the new year. I was curious about external monitors. If you connect a monitor that is capable of a higher resolution than the iBook, will you be able to set the resolution to what the ext monitor is capable of? Ok, now the same question, but for the power book. I'm assuming since the powerbook allows for a second monitor, and not just mirroring, that it will let you go to a higher resolution than the laptops monitor. But I wanted to be sure. I'm leaning heavily toward the iBook, but it would be really really nice if we could hook up an additional monitor and have a larger desktop to work with. I'm afraid that the powerbook is the only way we would be able to do that, but I'm not sure I'm willing to spend the extra cash. So any help would be greatly appriciated.
