I often use my MacBook Pro (model 8,1) in clamshell mode (i.e. integrated screen closed) with my Samsung 24" SyncMaster2443 screen. However I perceive the image on the screen as somewhat blurry, definitely not unusable but not quite as crisp as when I connect the same screen to my desktop PC.
According to the specs I look up, the MBP can go up to 2560x1600, and my screen should be able to go up to 1920x1200 (Samsung Sweden official page, in Swedish). When I go to my display settings I do not see the active screen resolution, it simply says "best for display".
I have started to think that the issue might be due to the fact that I have connected the MBP using a VGA-Displayport mini adapter. Will changing to a DVI-Displayport adapter make a difference? If so, should I pay attention to Single/Dual link, or DVI-D/I?
