    Can anyone offer a link or maybe their own personal explanations for displays, screen resolutions, aspect ratios, etc?

    I am in the market for a monitor for my early 2008 Macbook but I am clueless when it comes to getting the correct one. I get the basics of resolutions and that the number of pixels determine what that is, but I could use a little more insight. Basically, why will certain displays not work with certain computers, and so on.

    I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. Your MacBook won't run on a display with a resolution higher than 1920 x 1200 because that is the most its graphics card can push.
