The screen shouldn't look stretched in anyway unless the resolution is set lower than recommended - which is the case with almost all LCD displays.

As you have a 15" MBP the difference in screen space is quite large and would make a good difference. I have the 17" MBP with the same resolution as the 24" display and as the smaller screen has a smaller dot pitch I prefer to use the 17" display and would only consider a 30" monitor as an upgrade.

Coincidentally though, I sold my 30" monitor for little more than the LED display - it was 1 year old and mint so if you have a look on eBay you may prefer to go all out if you have some extra money and the desk space.
