    Specs:
    iMac 27" 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, OS 10.6.8
    Dell U2410 with Macbook Pro
    We just got a the Dell monitor to use with our Macbook. The Dell rotates for use in portrait mode but if it is used on a non-Dell computer, I am told I have to go to my computer manufacturer's website to find out how to rotate material for display (the Dell plug-in only works on Dell computers). Couldn't find anything on the Apple website. Does anyone here know how enable the rotation of material? Thanks

    Just plug this Dell monitor into your MacBook Pro (assuming you have the proper video adapter). The "rotation" software you're concerned about is already build into the Mac OS...you just have to make the adjustment in the "Display" control panel...within "System Preferences".
