Re: No... That's a very slow processor

Very informative, thank you.

About me: I simply want something to hook up to a new 24inch monitor and run Lightroom/browse internet. Until now I've used laptops because of their mobility (I travel and live abroad, thus the emphasis on form factor). But now I've bought a monitor to do proper post processing, and hooking a laptop into a monitor limits resolution to my understanding.

24-inch monitors typically have a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels.  A single-link DVI connection or low-resolution HDMI connection can handle that.  If the resolution is being forced down to a setting below 1920 x 1200, make sure that you are running the screen in extended mode and not mirroring the contents of the internal LCD screen.
