    I currently have an imac and its slow.Its the first intl 2.16 ghz white one. I would like to use my new 13" macbook pro for my photoshoping and video editing needs since its pretty fast. I was wondering, if the graphics card is powerful enough to connect to the new LED apple display 24" i believe.
    An advice.

    I do believe so, yes.
    I use it often on a 20.5 inch display that has a resolution of 1680*1050, so I can't imagine you'd have difficulty on that monitor, whose resolution I'd guess is 1920*1080.

    yea the website says
    # Supported resolutions:

    * 1920 by 1200 pixels
    * 1280 by 800 pixels
    * 1024 by 640 pixels

    on the apple led
    1280x800 is my mbp 13" resolution which is good too.

    Yes I drive a large display all the time with the GPU on that computer.

    Watch out for the heat, you'll use more juice with a bigger monitor

    but the battery shouldnt matter if the magsafe is connected to the mbp while its powering the acd?unless there is a seperate plug to power the acd.

    YOU'RE NOT POWERING THE MONITOR WITH THE COMPUTER. :confused::confused::confused:

    You plug the Cinema Display into the wall and then plug the MagSafe from the display into the computer. The display really powers the computer, not the other way around.
