Ok here is the issue. I am starting school again and I also am starting a job for a guy that I did freelance artwork for from time to time. The problem is this: I want a laptop that I can take to school and then when I get to work I want to be able to hook it up to a bigger screen, so I can do the art required (he uses crappy pcs and his software selection is not what I prefer). The work i do is not complex but the bigger screen is a nice plus. So.... the ibook will only mirror, and does that mean the resolution can not go past 1024 x 768? If that is the case I should stick with a 12" powerbook? Let me know what you suggest, Thanks!
