Right Mike, I can run my 9" Asus netbook with a 36" screen and sometimes do. But I'm just asking about the hardware, the motherboard, if you will. Not the monitor. The iMac has a Notebook motherboard does it not? :icon_ banana: Basically what happened is that apple stuffed a notebook motherboard into a desktop case/display form factor and sold it as a desktop, and many people bit. Those buyers most often didn't realize there was a distinction.
