I have an original 1.66 Core Solo updated to the T7200 Core 2 Duo with 2 gigs ram running Snow Leopard.

Currently running a nice Acer 22" Ferrari monitor.

What is the maximum size monitor one can run 1080i 1600 x 900 or HDTV?

I'm real curious if the little gm950 can swing much more. With the Intel chip can it swing 32" or 40"?

Much appreciated. Very Happy

From looking around, it looks like the largest resolution supported would be 1920 by 1200.

The physical size of the display is not relevant, only the display resolution.

Thanks for your kind response.

I also found this article which may be helpful to others:

It's impressive how a upgraded mac mini from 2006 can still yield benefits with some labor today.
