    Is there a way to hook another monitor on to this baby?
    Does it have to be an Apple monitor?
    (Quality of the second unit would not be an issue.)
    If not, are there any limitations?
    What kind of connecting stuff would I need?
    Haven't really seen the answer searching the forums, so I thought I would give up and ask.

    You have to buy a Mini-DVI to DVI/VGA adapter. Try the Apple store.

    That was the confirmation I was looking for. I don't know why I couldn't find it myself on the Apple site. (Lack of brain cells?) Looks like I just need a $20 adapter and I will be good to go. Thanks jpod89.

    I just bought my first macs and had the guy throw in a mini dvi just for fun.
    Well I love having the second display. From dvd to itunes to chat windows to whatever, it is so nice to have a secondary display, especially if you already have it, like in my case, why let it go to waste.
