New to Mac, so this might be a stupid question. I have my Macbook connected to my 32" Vizio LCD. Is it possible for me to set the TV as my primary monitor rather than having an extended screen setup. I want to be able to close my MB and use a usb mouse and keyboard as if it was a desktop. Is this possible?
QUOTE Thanks

If you close the mb so it goes to sleep then wake it up with the mouse the monitor will be your primary

Hope this helps

Yes. When I use my MacBook at home that's exactly what I do. See the following Apple KB article which explains how to use your MacBook in clamshell mode: Link
