    Hi, would it be possible to use dual screens, one with VGA and one with DVI, with a Mini? I hope that doesn't sound too goofy! :D

    In short, no.

    There is only 1 output, you can only have 1 screen. That 1 output is DVI, but can be converted to VGA with a supplied adapter. Either way, you still only have 1 screen.

    I thought DVI connectors that can be converted to VGA contained both analog and digital output on separate pins and as such has two output channels in a way. If that is true and if the two channels can show different content is another matter.
