If I connect a Macbook (or any Mac) to a TV, will I be limited to the Macs resolution

    For example, on the Apple website, it says the Macbook supports a number of resolutions, but none of them are my TV's native resolution (1920x1080). Will my TV accept a lower resolution or can the Mac go up to 1080p?

    You can select 1080i or 1080p. You can't, however, type any resolution at will.

    If you are talking about the current MacBook, then I think you read only the display specs, and did not read the graphics chip specs immediately below that:
