Okay, so I've got a Macbook that is from '08 that has pretty much served its time well and quite recently it's having a hardware issue where the screen almost 100% of the time has a vertical tear going on:
I know I have the option of taking it somewhere and having it fixed, but my plan with this computer was just to hook up an LCD to it and use it as a downloading mule.
My question lies here(and it might be a dumb one) but does anyone think that this problem will transfer onto the ported monitor? I know for a fact the issue is within the monitor signal ribbon(I am able to flick the screen and move the arm at certain angles to which it will change/disappear)
I just want to cover my bases before I purchase another monitor.
