Currently, I have: White MacBook 2.1 Ghz, 4GB RAM, 120GB HD 21" Screen (not widescreen) Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse VGA Adapter USB Keyboard I have to say that at some points, the 13" screen doesn't do it for me, and at times (like when I'm doing school work), I wish it would be a bit bigger. I like my MacBook being portable though. So I came to the idea to hook up my external monitor. I hooked it up last night, yet had a couple problems. My first being that the VGA adapter doesn't connect to the screens cord directly and those little screws were too small. Second being IDK how to close the screen. Now it worked okay, yet if I moved the cords at all the screen would become blue. So I figured I'd need a new 21" Widescreen. Approx price? IDK Then, I'd need a USB hub. I'd like one that stands up because I would like to connect: -Keyboard -Somehow a printer -USB thumb drives -iPod dock -Blackberry Dock So I'm thinking that thats a lot coming out of my MacBook. To clarfiy, that'll be: -Charger - USB hub -Speakers -Perhaps a mic All of the slots will most likely be filled. Right there, its a lot of "crap" connected my MacBook, and to undo all of it just to move is a bit annoying. Then comes the Mac Mini. Being fairly cheap, I could get one at a decent price (off of eBay) and just use it for school work. The things that bother me about this is: 1. It may be a waste - I might use the desktop all the time or never at all, do I want to spend $$ to do it? 2. I still would need a widescreen display Yet I wouldn't need to unhook all the stuff. So is $300 worth not plugging/unplugging all the stuff? IDK. PS: Any good deals on an external monitor?!?
