So, my(first) question is: Is my darling macbook going to be able to cope with pushing pixels around at 1680 x 1050? Bear in mind I'll be browsing, listening, chatting, watching and working, with the odd bit of shopping. Secondly: Can I run the external display at its highest resolution in open - lid mode? Thirdly: In clamshell mode, is it safe to be doing anything that might generate any considerable heat? Fourthly: Can I position my Macbook to the left of the monitor (obviously in open lid mode), and have the dock on the external display? or does it have to be 'on top'? Sorry to ask such nubbish questions, but y'know, I wouldn't want to damage it or anything. Many regards.
