I'm 99% sure it will work, as the 27" has the same resolution (1900x1200) as the 24"

yea i think your right im just wondering if its too big. I'm considering the 20 inch ultra sharp its only $350. I just wonder if 20 inches is a good size. I dont want to end up wishing i got a biger monitor.

I recently got 2 of Samsung 225BW monitors, and while it is a great upgrade from my 17" monitors, I sometimes think I should have gotten the Dell 2407WFP simply because of the higher resolution. When pairing an external monitor with a MacBook, I think the bigger the monitor the better. Go with what you can justifiably afford. :-)

I like Apple displays, but the Dell monitors (almost anything they make) has a better price.

That's why most public schools now use Dells with the Win*ows
