    I read this in a post elsewhere and am looking for a new 24 inch + monitor on a budget. I could ideally use the monitor for music work on my mac, my xbox and snes and for watching tv.

    "If I may offer one bit of advice about LCD monitors is that they only run optimally in their native resolution. You will need to get a large enough monitor to support this resolution for comfortable viewing or you can end up with tiny desktop icons. Reducing the resolution will likely degrade image quality."

    What does this mean given I have the unibody macbook pro 2.8 released around christmas 2008 with the best the better graphics card (whichever one that was).

    Cheers,
    Acid

    If the display has a native resolution of 1920*1200 pixels, it is best to run it with that resolution, as any lower one looks soft and pixelated. And your 2.8GHz MBP will do just fine with that resolution.

    To see what I mean, just change the internal display's resolution to something lower than 1440*900.
