    Hi

    I am contemplating buying this monitor/TV

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/143327

    I will use it as a monitor when watching DVDs and then as a switch over to the tuner to watch television.

    Will the graphics card (I think it's an ati x1600) be able to provide a 1920x1200 1080p resolution to the monitor?


    Thanks in advance.

    I had a rev A MBP that ran a 24" 1920x1200 display without issue. I even played some games on it no problem. You'll be just fine.

    My old Rev. A Core Duo MacBook Pro could drive a 23" HD display (ACD) with no probs. It also could drive a 30" ACD with no problems.

    My MBP has no problem running 1920x1200 on my 24" lcd as well as 2560x1600 on my 30" lcd. Even playing 3d games.

    Yes, the MacBook Pro is fully capable of driving a high definition display thanks to the discreet graphics processor included (either ATI or NVIDIA, depending on which model MacBook Pro you own).

    I'm using a Samsung 2653HM with my MBP and it's working great.
