hi i have a black macbook (13inch screen), pretty small. But i now have an external monitor that i would like to try to use with macbook, i think you can connect it, and just close the macbook lid, or mayber use both at the same time(?). basically i dont understand the connections i have, and whats needed. my external is pretty similar to these: http://www.twenga.co.uk/prices-Gallery-1900-Platinum-Xtreme-3-FORMAC-LCD-monitor-138509-0 http://www.twenga.co.uk/prices-Gallery-1900-Raven-Xtreme-3-FORMAC-LCD-monitor-138510-0 its currently plugged into pc working fine, but with huge white connnection. macbook doesnt have this connection, might need an adaptor i presume. The external does have a usb wire sticking out from monitor, maybe that could be used to connect to macbook? or that might be just so you can use two usb ports on monitor..eg connect that usb wire into pc, so you can use the usb ports on monitor... thanks for any help given.
