May I ask how the MBP handles with the 30" ACD attatched to it? I was seriously thinking of getting a 30" monitor (either ACD or the Dell) and connecting it to my MBP 15". Right now i'm just saving money, although i'm thinking ill make the purchase around december/january. Although i don't want to get a 30" if it's going to be too demanding on the MBP.

I have not noticed any performance issues. In the picture, I was running both a dvd and a tv show from iTunes (Kyle XL). Display settings are 2560 X 1600 in Millions of colors.
