    So I just bought a used 15" macbook pro on Ebay. I have a 30" cinema display that I plan to connect to it. I'm wondering if I will encounter any problems or need anything else to run it properly.

    The specs are as follows:

    2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    ATI Radeon X1600 256MB VRAM
    4 MB L2 Cache
    15" Widescreen Display
    120 GB Hard Drive
    Built-in iSight Camera
    Airport & Bluetooth
    2 USB Ports, 1 Firewire 400, 1 Firewire 800
    DVI Port
    CD & DVD Burner (Super Drive)
    Expansion Slot
    Optical Audio Input
    Apple Remote

    I have a 17 inch MBP with similar specs that runs that config on a 24" display. Don't think you'll have a problem on a 30 incher

    I was concerned I wouldn't get full resolution out of the display. No issues with that either?

    That will work fine. It has a dual-link DVI connection.

    I have that same Graphics config on my 17" MacBook Pro and it can drive my 30" monitor fine at full native resolution and refresh rate (2560x1600 @ 60Hz). You should not have any problems at all.
