    Good morning everyone!

    I'm thinking of getting a MBP 13'', together with an external display. That way I get the portability of a MBP 13'' while maintining an in-house big external display and 400$ in my wallet, only losing a bit of processor power (which is found negligible by most users).

    My question has to do with resolution. MBP 13'''s resolution is 1280 by 800, right? My question is: if I buy a display with higher resolution, will I be able to enjoy that resolution? Or no matter how big my external display's resolution is, will I always be stuck with 1280*800?

    Thanks for your answers in advance!
