A friend has a Power Macintosh 8500/180 (yes a bit of a classic from the mid-90s!) and wishes to upgrade the monitor from the huge CRT it is now using to LCD.
Looking at the specs of this machine it has a DB15 display port, which it seems can output via VGA via an adapter such as this. Any idea if this would work?
I seem to remember that in years gone by Mac's were only compatible with Multisync monitors. Is this the case with LCD? In other words, would any old LCD work, or should a multisync LCD be purchased?
Likewise, would a driver be required, and would it matter if the monitor was widesceen?
