    I was reading a review for a monitor I plan on buying and it said "DVI 1920x1080 is smaller than the 1650x1050, it is centered 80% of the screen."

    Would I have any problems with this on the 13 Inch MBP?

    1920x1080 isn't a problem.

    I have my 13" UMB hooked up to my Samsung 40" 1080p TV and I have no issues doing movies/files and whatnot.

    I really have no idea what this means. I have a 23 in. Samsung running off my MBP 17. The laptop maxes out at 1050 and the Samsung at 1620X1200. I run it at 1920X1080. If it is set to extended desktop, it fills both screens at their native resolutions, even though they are different. If I switch to mirroring, then the laptop display is centered at about 80% of the Samsung. I think the box is backwards.

    If you run in mirror mode on two monitors with different native resolution you can't get them to run in their correct mode. Use "extended mode", i.e. not mirrored.
