Additional monitor resolution

Recommended Posts

Just a question about resolution.

 

I'd like to get an external monitor for my wife's MBP (mid 2010). I currently use an old 23" apple display which has a resolution of 1920x1200.

 

1. When shopping around where I live (Hong Kong) I can only find LED TVs that are 1920x1080, not specifically computer monitors. Will this slightly different resolution affect the end result? Will it be squashed?

 

2. Do I need the dual link DVI? Or is just the mini display to DVI ok?

 

Thanks for any help

the DVI spec supports that resolution using a standard DVI cable.

And yes, a mid-2010 MBP will drive an external display 1920x1080 over DVI at its native resolution with no squashing. That's the exact setup I have, though my display *is* a dedicated monitor, not a TV.
