    Reportedly the MacBook supports both the 20" and the 23" HD ACD's, however it does not have the available video processing power to run the 30" HD ACD. I regularly run a 19" 1280x1024 monitor off of my 2.4GHz BlackBook without any problems whatsoever.

    However, due to the fact that the machines graphics processor is not as powerful as that of the MacBook Pro, not does it have access to onboard memory, I wouldn't be surprised if the MacBook began to struggle displaying an image at full resolution on the 23" HD ACD.
