I have a Dell E6500 Latitude which I would like to connect to the Dell U3011 monitor. I would like to get the U3011to display apps much the size as the laptop screen. I tried a different 27" monitor having 1092x1080 resolution. I don't like the size of the apps and icons, not the same size as laptop. I thought the higher resolution of the U3011 or U2711 might work better. I think an external video card might be needed because the E6500 cannot support such high resolution. Some please help me figure this out. Note: I run Win7 and have the themes size set to smallest.
