    Hey all, I recently got an amazing 20'' widescreen monitor (Dell UltraSharp™ 2007WFP 20.1" Widescreen LCD Flat Panel Monitor), problem is I have nothing to run it on now. So what I want to do is get a new laptop, but be able to use my monitor with it when the laptop is in my room. (keeping the high quality image I could have gotten with a PC).

    Do you guys know of any good laptops that can do this? Or what extra cables/adapters I would need? I plan to use the laptop for media, school work, and web browsing (money really isn't an issue).

    Thanks in advance!
    -Matt

    Sure it will. Just plug it in, and hopefully the software will recognize it automatically.

    You will need a DVI cable (assuming your laptop has a DVI port.). If not, then you will need a VGA cable. Both of these should have come with your monitor.
