    hi all. i have an early 2011 13 macbook pro with thunderbolt. i have a Samsung LE32B450C4W TV which support HDMI. i would like to use this as a temp display while i wait for my thunderbolt display.

    The TV manual says its native res is 1366 x 768, VGA

    my question is, does this mean thats the highest res it will support via VGA. and if i use HDMI i will get the full 1080p? (1920 x 1080) the same as i get on my xbox and ps3? I'm a little confused. I'm also in need of a HDMI to thunderbolt cable, do apple sell these?

    please advise. if possible
    thanks!

    As it is the native resolution, you will only see 1080p content at the resolution mentioned in your manual.
    from http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsung-le32b450-le32b450c-20090625155.htm

    Btw, VGA can support more than 1920 x 1080p pixel, thus the native resolution of the TV has nothing to do with the VGA input.
