Re: [MacBook Pro 13"] Can it drive the big HD TV monitor?

Even 1080p is far fewer pixels than the retina display is. The video card can handle it, no problem, as others have mentioned.

The 'big' hdtv only does 1080p. That's 1920x1080, which is easy to drive.

It probably can also run games from this year at md to high settings at 1080p...

Not if the games require a dedicated video card. The 13" Retina or not, doesn't have dedicated standalone video, so games that require a hefty video card won't run them or run them very well.

The nvidia 650m used in the macbook pro can hold its own. I don't know where you got your info..

All 13 inch MBPs only have an Intel HD Graphics 4000. You have to step up to a 15 inch MBP for the NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M.
