Has anyone been able to use these monitors with a laptop?

I know the sellers say that these monitors can not be used with laptops, but I think there must be at least SOME laptops out there that are capable of supporting this resolution via dual-link DVI. Has anyone had any success running these monitors with a laptop? Either directly, or through some sort of adaptor is find. I am shopping around for a laptop and would like to know what to look for to ensure I can use my new laptop with this monitor.

Displayport out is the only option I know of, and it would need an active adapter.

this monitor really good, bought from red-cap, got 3dead, and some stuck, but it's not annoying , because bigger monitor mean longer distance watch
i like this glossy monitor

not lose to dell yltra sharp

the problem is...
need to calibrate the color
my dell still superior on color configuration

but this monitor
achieva shimian got no menu...

after check google there some monitor with menu

man...
a monitor with brightness control only...
sigh...

@salvanos, depending on what type of graphic card you have, you may be able to adjust colours via your graphic card

I suspect that this is the answer to my question! The full details of what is going on are:

So, I plunked down for one of those 27" IPS panel monitors from Korea (this one, specifically). It arrived rather quickly, and it looks really nice. However, for some reason it does NOT work with my Early 2011 13" MacBook Pro. I am running OS 10.8.2, using the Apple Thunderbolt to DVI adapter.

If I hook up a generic Dell monitor to the cable and adapter, it works. So, it's not the cable, adapter or laptop.
If I hook up the monitor to a Windozze machine, it works, so it's not entirely the screen.

What am I missing? I specifically chose this monitor because the reviews said it would work with a Mac, and if you Google around, they should!

Thanks in advance for the help!

You specifically need a dual link DVI connection. Most adapters from other sources to DVI are only single link, which can't go above ~1920x1200. Since these monitors have no scaler, you can't get an image unless the adapter support 2560x1440.

I can't believe the Nexus 10 has a better resolution than this with a 9x smaller screen, comes with the best arm processor, and a slew of other stuff, for $399 as well. The prices on these are extremely inflated, and much go down, hopefully soon.

Gotcha. Any recommendations for a good one?
