    The text looks a lot different from the Macbook's display. I got it to 1080p and stuff - and yes, it's showing the full 1080p. But how do I get the text to look more like the Mac's text? My Macbook display looks so much sharper

    In fact, the text looks awful. Does not look awful on my 360, however.

    I had the same problem with another Dell, a bit more expensive than yours but still not considered a high end monitor. Some calibration on the monitor and the mac helped me a bit.
    I calibrated using the colour assistant in the display preferences, and have the settings on the monitor at 75 brightness and contrast, custom RGB colour settings.
    Still looks no way near as good as my laptop but much better.

    I run a Dell E2210H on three different MBP's and a MB and it works fine. I agree, it's not as crisp as the laptop displays, but it works pretty well.

    Yep, I have one too. It's not as nice as my MBP screen but it does the trick.
