OK I purchased the cheapest possible HP dv6 with Intel graphics/shared video ram. The machine is Core i3 with Win7, 6G.
Is this existing Intel graphics enough graphics horsepower to drive a 24" 1920x1200 external display? The dv6 of course has both VGA and HDMI ports.
I'm looking at purchasing a higher end 24" monitor (HP Compaq LA2405wg) that is pivot ready (vertical or horizontal).

The notebook does have enough display power. Intel HD 3000 is the better of the currently available HD 2000 \ HD 3000 options.
The maximum resolution depends on the connection type.
- Display Port: 2500x1600
- HDMI/DVI/VGA: 1920x1200
The problem you will have is that you need a DVI or HDMI input on the display that you purchase to achieve high definition display. VGA is not capable of providing 1080p.
When you are checking the specs be sure that you purchase a monitor/display that has:
Signal Input Connector
This way you will be assured that you can connect your notebook to your display and achieve high definition video and viewing. HDMI is the most important input for high definition viewing from a notebook PC.
