    Question,

    Can somehow connect two monitors to a 12" PBook for an extended display?


    Thanks,
    Eric

    The dual display capability means adding a second display that doesn't mirror the built in LCD -- not adding two monitors to the powerbook.

    I know but say i wanted to add 2 monitors to the powerbook so you could see the desktop over three monitors in total for a very big viewing area, not miroring.

    You want to do this?

    Might work if you sell your PowerBook12, and buy a PowerMac G5 and a PCI video card to give yourself another DVI port.

    But won't work easily on the PB12, you'll need a notebook with an empty PC card video slot.

    You can definitely do it on a 15 or 17 inch PB (using PC card video), but you can't with a 12.

    You're out of luck. You can only add 1 monitor.
