I just got a mbp with the 8600M GT and was wondering if 1440x900 was the max resolution, i had a dell with a older graphics card but was about to run at 1680x1050. Does this depend on the moniter?

What screen size is your MBP? 15" or 17"

What screen size was your Dell?

Yes. 1440x900 is the maximum resolution of your computer.

It depends on the screen, not the graphics card. Some screens have higher resolutions than others...
Your graphics card can handle the resolution of a 30'' monitor...

Sounds like your Dell had the UltraSharp display. I also had one in my Inspiron 8200 - that was 1600x1200 in a 15" display. It was a beautiful display, but dang was the type ever small!

There's just no comparison between these displays though. Despite their claims to the contrary, Apple uses relatively mediocre displays in their products, including the MacBook Pro, unfortunately.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
