Enabling an external display for the Dell Mini with OSX

I tend to do quite a lot of presentations so was keen to get the Dell Mini with OSX ready for being able to plug into projectors and external monitors. Given the Dell’s unique display resolution this proved to be a bit of a problem, but the solution proved to be fairly simple. If you are using a Mini with OSX, the quick way to get around this is to obtain a simple application to mirror displays from Fabian Canas. You can get it here. This toggles between mirrored displays.

Once you have the dual display setup you will probably want to make the external monitor the primary.  To do this, call up the Displays Pref Pane and drag the menu bar to the external monitor. The external monitor is now the primary and you can get on with the presentations !
