    Hi all,

    I am very close to pulling the trigger and coming over to Apple land. My question is: what is the maximum supported resolution that the MBP 17" will provide so I can figure out what type of external monitor to buy for the home office?

    Thanks in advance!

    it depends if you buy the dual link dvi adapter or not. Its like 100 bucks, but you can find them for 60 to 70 elsewhere.

    single link is 1920 × 1200
    dual link is 2560 × 1600

    This is correct but also a note, Displayport is capable of putting out 2560x1600 by itself as well so if the monitor has a displayport connecter on it you wont even need a DVI adapter.
