IŽve read the requirement is ATI Radeon 9800 video card. IŽve bought a dell 17 and I want to know if IŽll be able to rotate the monitor and the view..

If you have Tiger screen rotation is built in. If not the new ATI drivers should work. Is your new display DVI?

The mini doesn't have the ATI 9800 video card it has the 9200. The 9200 will rotate but only if you have Tiger installed. I think the only Dell LCDs that rotate are in the UltraSharp line. Hope that helps!

What do you mean when you say you want to rotate the view?

Many of the new higher end LCD displays are capable of having the screen rotated 90 degrees so that for example you would go from 1600x1200 to 1200x1600 display or from a 4:3 ratio to a 3:4 ratio, dependant of course, on your monitor. This quite handy when working with legal size documents, particularly when you work with dual displays.
