Evening all, I have recently purchased a MBP 13 (2011) and the official apple Mini display port ---- to ---- vga connector. I have it connected to a 22 inch dell flatscreen, running at its native res with the laptop closed. The resolution is fine, but the actual picture quality is terrible. It is roughly 50% the kind of quality I'm getting off the laptop screen and about 50% of the quality I get on this monitor out of my desktop. It isn't a massive issue, because I really just need the screen real estate when I'm working, rather than the nice quality. However it would sure be easier to look at all day if it were up to the same standard as the laptop itself. Is the quality reduction just an inherent aspect of the conversion from MDP to VGA?? Is there anything I can do to improve it? Different display etc??
