I need to use an external monitor for client presentations

Resolved Question:

I need to use an external monitor for client presentations with my MacBookPro. The one I use is a Dell monitor. I find that connecting this monitor throws off the resolution on the MacBookPro. What external monitor would work well for me?

Hi I am one of the experts here at Just Answer.com

 

The Apple LED Cinema Display works very well with the MacBook Pro Laptop

I use it with mine in pretty much the same configuration as you I just happen to use parrells instead of VMFusion.

 

It works well because it has the mini port video cable so theres no issues of compatability or anything like that

Is there anything less pricey? If not, I will bit the bullet.
Expert:  Omer Mushahwar replied 6 years ago.

Is there a certain size monitor you are looking to get for this?

 

The LED Cinema display is really nice because its basically built to work with this laptop

Any size from 19" up. But, the critical thing is that it works well with the MacBookPro and does not throw off the resolution and screen size. I think your answer about the Apple monitor is the way to go and I thanks you for that.

Gotcha the nice thing about the apple is its ideal resolution and stuff

 

If you know what resolution you run your macbook pro at there are a few other options
