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.

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.

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

And "subpar" is a terrible and incorrect description for the MacBook's video card.
