    HallouW ! :rolleyes:

    I just bought a blackbook!, (waiting for it to come, comming tomorrow :D)

    however now i just need a external monitor for it.. can some1 i here help me out a little plz :) ??

    The Monitor:
    It has to be black (at least most of it)
    It has to be in the range of between 19" and 22", (higher is better)
    Is has to have at least 5 MS in response time, (2 MS is highly applicated :) )
    And i would like it to have 2x VGA (D-Subs) OR 2x DVI-D plots

    The reason for the 2x VGA or DVI connections is because I would like to have BOTH my new MacBook and my old stationary PC connected to the same monitor, so that i am able to switch between the MAC and the PC on the same monitor..
    Is this possible at all ??

    plz help me out hey fellow Mac'ers :D,

    you actually don't need two connectors if you pick up a little adaptor 2 to 1 connectors. just connect your mac to one and your pc to the other and with the flip of a switch you can change it, I think it even supports shared keyboards. I suppose the only real advantage to this however is to cheapen things up a little and make more of a docked environment for your macbook. Hope you enjoy it!
