    Anyone else done this to external 17" LCD?

    The image seems "soft" compared to main Macbook display - or same LCD on a PC.

    On a side note: if I bought a Mini-DVI to VGA adaptor for my iMac (CoreDUo), would it also work on the new MacBook??

    What's the native res of the LCD (the res the PC probably uses)? Make sure your Mac is using that too--it's the only sharp size.

    Also, is the PC connecting via DVI rather than VGA?

    Those are the only thoughts I have.

    Re AtHomeBoy: the adapter should be exactly the same. But you can call Apple to make certain, or look the adapter up at (assuming they have bothered to update the product description since the MacBooks came out).

    MacBook Pros use full-size DVI ports I think, but you're talking about the MacBook.
