    What do you want it to do?

    If you don't have anything specific in mind, I'd suggest putting up an image of an attractive celebrity (or your significant other, if applicable.) :mac:

    Thats a good idea, ile probly do that too but i was wondering if its possible to run better resolution on that monitor and the same resolution on the PowerBook when mirroring displays.

    sure it's possible... just go to displays in the preferences window and click detect displays. I've never done it before, but you should be able to set different prefs for each seperate monitor.
