    I have a 13" macbook, 2ghz, 1gb ram, Intel GMA 950 64mb of shared system memory (not really sure what that means)

    I've been doing a lot of photo editing lately on this thing, and im getting to the point where I want to get an external monitor. I was thinking a 24" dell screen, but I dont really know if it will handle that large of a screen.

    Really, I just want you guys to talk me into a MBP, and hold off on a new monitor for now :x:

    Im just worried about resale value of my macbook, cause the corner is cracked (fell out of my backpack when my zipper busted open from carrying to many books) along with the usual spots where the screen closes. It works flawlessly though and i :love: it

    If I keep it, I need more memory, that is for sure
