Welcome to the forums.
I run 1920x1200 with the Intel gma x4500mhd in my T500, currently with DisplayPort to DVI cable. The DVI-D output on the Advanced Mini Dock also works from within Linux, but does not display the ThinkPad boot screen on my monitor. That may be fixed with a future BIOS upgrade (I hope :-)). Anyway, I don't imagine that 1920x1080 will present a problem.
Enjoy your new ThinkPad and monitor :-)

Why do you want an external monitor with a different screen ratio than your T500?
When I bought my T500 I was tired of switching resolutions and getting my desktop messed up whenever docking and undocking so bought an external monitor (Thinkvision 22" ) with the same native resolution 1680x1050 as the T500.
T500: Vista 32, 2.8GHz, 4GB RAM, 15.4" 1680x1050, 500GB 7200rpm, ATI Radeon HD3650 + Intel 4500MHD. T42: XP, 1.7GHz, 2GB RAM, 14.1" 1024x768, 250GB PATA, ATI Radeon 7500.
