    So, I just hooked up an external monitor to my macbook, its a 22" dell. I'm noticing that everything looks a little more jagged and is not as smooth as on my normal monitor. Its supposed to be a fairly good monitor and so I would expect that I shouldnt have this problem. Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

    Try running the MB in clamshell mode so you can increase the resolution on the external monitor.

    I tried clamshell mode. It has no problem powering the 1680x1050, although Dvd's are a little choppy w/ the macbook open, but it doesn't change whether or not I go into clamshell mode. Everything else looks good on the monitor except for the text.
