    Hey there, just a question about my MBP

    My 13"has a max res of 1280 x 800.... if i were to plug in a standard (or apple) display, what is the mac res i could get it running at? could i get it to 1080?

    Also what do you guys think of the 20"Apple display? (the one that looks like the *current* 30") Are they good?

    Thanks

    Jonathan

    2560 x 1600 is the supported resolution for external displays according to Apple and its official website.

    The 20" Apple Cinema Display is a good one, but quite old. Be sure to not pay that much.

    Yup... 2560x1600 is what apple says. So totally 1080p!

    That's a good price I guess, but know, that the 20" ACD only has a maximum resolution of 1680 x 1050.

    If you're looking at a used Apple Cinema Display, then try to go for the 23in rather than the 20in. The extra real estate is useful and it's 1920x1200, so Ok for 1080p too.
