    So I'm studying the gpu and resolution capabilities on all the MBP's.

    According to the NVIDIA website, the 330m has a "maximum digital resolution" of 2560x1600. And according to the apple website the supported resolution on the 15 incher is a 1440x900... unless we shell out another Benjamin for the upgraded resolution.

    For sh17z 'N giggles, lets say I attach a monitor with a 1680x1050 supported resolution to the MBP. If I had the 1440 res model would that be the highest I could put the monitor in?

    No, as stated on Apple's site, it can have a resolution of 2560 x 1600 on an external screen, and as there are no Apple laptops with that internal resolution, it seems to be independent.

    So, you can have an MBP with 1440 x 900 resolution and an external monitor with a resolution of up to 2560 x 1600, including 1680 x 1050.

    Good stuff brother, but since I desire the matte display it looks like I'm getting the higher features anyway.

    Thanks for the info

    That does not make any resolution higher or lower anyway. The maximum external resolution is still 2560 x 1600 with a 30" display or one of the 27" ones.
