    I have a 13 in 2.4 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook.

    I would like to buy a monitor for it. I would like to buy a 22in or 24in. Any recommendations?

    How can I find out what resolution my particular MacBook will support if I hook it up to a monitor?

    Thanks

    I have 24" BenQ E2400HD with my iMac. It's great monitor for low price

    No problems sitting in front of such a big monitor? Eyes get used to it?

    ...I was looking at that monitor for $149 but I got a close out deal on the HP2408w which is full HD 1080 resolution for $249 delivered:D

    hardware limitations?

    hoping to start this thread up again with a question...

    are there any limitations to consider when buying an external monitor (bc of the lack of a legit video card)? i, too, have an early '08 MB.

    i'm just not sure how big/powerful a monitor the macbook can talk to and still work well.

    thanks!
