I have a 13" macbook. And occasionally when working with photographs, etc I would like a larger screen.

Iv seen the new 24" screen on apple, but its a bit out of my range right now around $900. So I was thinking of the older 23" version. Iv seen it on ebay for around $500 (M9178LL/A is the model number?)

so heres my questions

1. is this a good monitor? anyone have it? hook up fine to my black macbook?

2. does the resolution work okay? I have tried hooking up my macbook to my 46" LCD tv and had some issues getting resolution correct. will I be able to watch 1080p videos in full quality on this screen?
