Hey guys, I have an early 2014 13" Macbook Air with 1.4Ghz i5 and 4GB of RAM. It has the "Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 MB" video. Just the basic $999 MBA. I would like an external display, I was looking at the ASUS PB278Q which is a 27" monitor with 2560X1440 resolution. It also has speakers which will help because I would like to close my MBA and put it underneath the desk while using the external display and Apple wireless keyboard and Magic Mouse. This should be simple, but I have read various issues. I was told that using displayport is better than HDMI. In some instances I read that HDMI might not pass anything higher than 1080p, which is surprising. My plan was to get a mini displayport to displayport adapter cable and be set. But I have read that the cable from Monoprice will not work because it is 1.1 and it won't pass audio and it might not pass the higher resolution. Is this true? If so, which model cable should I use to go from my MBA's MDP to the monitor's DP? Any other issues? Will I have a problem running a high resolution monitor from my little MBA?
