Okay. I have a 12-inch powerbook. Just wondering what my options are for a larger display. For instance, I'd like to come home and be able to plug my laptop into say a 17-inch monitor and work from that. I LOVE my powerbook, but I don't necessarily care for the monitor being so close to my face on the laptop (or the fact that it is so small).

So yea, what are my options here?
QUOTE Thanks

ummm, anything that has a compatible connection with your powerbook should be fine. Monitors are not OS specific, so you should be able to use just about anything you want.
