    Hi there,

    New to the site and am looking for a larger display for my 13.3" white macbook. I like the look of the HPs and think they are compatible with my PC but can't find out if they are with mac. Can anyone help, the model numbers are:
    HP 2010i 20in LCD Monitor
    HP 2210i 21.5in Full HD LCD Monitor
    HP 2310i 23in Full HD LCD Monitor ?

    Any help would be great thanks.:apple:

    displays aren't OS-specific- the hardware and connections are what matters. How old is your Macbook? Newer ones use mini Displayport, which requires a different adapter than before. As long as you get the correct adapters and cables, you won't have a problem.

    The newest white one (came out Oct 09). What cables would I need for that mac? And do you have an idea of what I might need for my pc?

    Macbook is Mini Displayport.

    Which ports are on your PC? VGA out? HDMI? DVI out? You need to take a look at it.

    Assuming your PC had VGA out, you would need this cable:-

    There is an equivalent cable for if your PC is only DVI out.

    Check the monitor you intend to buy has VGA connectors before buying!
