Looking for a monitor for macbook...
I was wondering if a anyone knows of good monitor for a macbook, my problem is that I am also looking for a t.v, just to play video games. So is there any monitor that I can use for my macbook and be able to be connected to a video game console?

My Friend has a dell monitor for his mac pro and it also hooks up to his xbox. Its also pretty good quality.

would you happen to know the model by any chance? I was also thinking about an adapter (av to vga) but I dunno if they are reliable...

Yea thats what im going to do is get a lcd tv, but it depends what your going to do with the monitor, im just going to use mine as a video monitor out for color correction video on fcp. If your not using it for that stuff i heard text and smaller things look bad on tvs

Yeah my friend has a pretty nice 32' tv that he uses as his monitor... the quality is actually pretty bad...

ehh...guess I'll keep looking for a monitor with av input, cant find one though. I was also thinking of getting the adapter, GRANDTEC GVC ($65.), quality is lost from the console to monitor, but might take my chances I hope it isnt bad, not sure if i will though...
