10.4: MacBooks can rotate external displays
Authored by: Chip57 on Jul 01, '06 07:29:53PM

Almost any Mac running OS X can rotate a display -IF- it's using an ATI video subsystem, as the notebooks and minis have. Apparently, NO Mac can do this with an nVidia subsystem, which is what the recent PowerMacs have. While the nVidia cards can do this in Windows, for some reason, Apple has chosen to disable this in OS X.

I have a monitor that can rotate but a G5 with nVidia, and haven't been able to find a solution or reason for this. Anyone know of a way around this?
