    OK... here is my story. First I bought an Apple LED 24” display. I told the lady on the phone at the Apple store what kind of Mac I had, and she said it would work. Brought it home, was very excited, as it is a great looking display... but it does not work with my Mac!!! Next day I went to the closest Mac store, and was told that there is no adaptor made yet (and most likely never will be made) for my Mac! So, I had to return it...
    Yesterday I bought another monitor - Samsung P2370. I usually work with photos, and since most of the monitors nowadays are widescreen, it looks like my pictures are going to be distorted???
    Are there any good quality monitors for my older Mac which can show real sized photos?

    You just have to adjust the resolution. System Preferences -> Displays

    :) Well, I know that. But that would mean that I am using only a half of the monitor:)

    What's the aspect ratio? Odds are you're going to be using more than half the monitor (for a 16:9 WS monitor viewing a 4:3 photo, you'd be using 75% of the screen).
