View Full Version : max res on ibook external display

Anyone know what they get to? Can they get to 1920 x 1200? There is a bulk deal on dell 24" lcds that looks tasty?

Not in mirrored mode (obviously).

Can someone please try this on an ibook to see how high the external res can be?

i have switchres active on my ibook800 to run a 1600x1200 display.
it lets me switch up to 1920x1440 at 60hz.
so, it should?
though you would be asking a lot of your graphics card.
run the ibook screen at 640x480 with 256 colours to be nice.

The max res you will get off the Mini is 1920 x 1200, and it has the same graphics system as the iBook, so I would expect it something around there. Keep in mind thou, the iBook has to drive an extra 1024x758 on top of the 1920 x 1200.

EDIT. Just checked, the Mac mini supports 1920 x 1080 using VGA and 1920 x 1200 using DVI.
