    I have a new Macbook Air 13", 4GB RAM, 2.13Ghz, 256GB SSD.

    I'm connecting the Macbook with the Apple Mini Displayport to DVI connector to a DVI cable to a Dell 2407 monitor with a resolution of 1920x1200. The resulting image is blurry. The fonts are blurry and drop shadows on the screen flicker quite badly. The resolution on my Macbook is indeed set to 1920x1200 to match my Dell 2407.

    Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is the problem with the Mini Displayport to DVI adapter?

    I know for a fact that the Dell LCD and the DVI cable work fine with my Windows 7 box. I have tried two different DVI cables as well.

    It's fixed at 60Hz, which is typical for LCDs, I believe.
