    It's not the size of the monitor that counts. It the amount of pixels you can push.

    You should be able to do about 1600x just fine.
    schweb This has to be one of the best threads ever in MF history...
    Cherokee This gets my vote for most innovative thread on Mac-Forums... ever.

    Specs:
    Black MacBook 2GB, Mac Pro 2.66Ghz 3GB X1900.
    I do that on my Mac Mini which is slower than my Macbook, works fine. No performance issues.

    The graphics aren't that bad, they are better than a Radeon 9200 as used in older Macs.

    Benchmarks for Quake 3 on this page:

    98FPS aint bad.

    A Macbook can actually push 1920 x 1200 pixels on an external display.

    Extended desktop and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 1920 by 1200 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors

    Specs:
    MacBook Pro Retina 13" • iPhone 6 • iPad Air • and many iPods
    And "subpar" is a terrible and incorrect description for the MacBook's video card.
