I've got my MBP 15.4" with 24" gateway.
I love the 24" LCD.
It makes so much different with 1920x1200 resolution.
my arm gets some exercise going from my laptop screen to the 24" screen.
that hurts. I know that from personal experience.

Have fun with...
I fixed it.. (well not really).
I am selling this toshiba.
I bought a gateway laptop mx6956 (with 945gm video) last night.
I tested it, and voila...
the monitor is totally at 1920x1200.
The gateway laptop even has 1920x1080 - how cool...
Last testing was done using DELL Latitude D630 (intel 956).
The gateway monitor is at 1920x1200 - great looking resolution.
I am in the market now to replace the "defunt" Toshiba.
I hate this laptop!!!
Thank you all for the...
