Hello, after lurking for years, I have finally created an account. I have an early 2008 2.4 GHz Intel Core Duo MacBook with 2GB of RAM and the Intel GMA X3100 graphics card running OSX 10.6.6. I want to hook up three 23" widescreen monitors in portrait mode and have them be seen by the computer as three separate monitors as opposed to one large monitor. Also, I plan to have my laptop closed and put away and will be using a wireless mouse/keyboard. I will use this primarily for BIG excel spreadsheet and reading lots of PDFs. Hence the portrait to see everything more easily. Potential Issues: Hardware: I plan on using three USB to DVI adapters going through an AC powered USB multiport. I am fairly certain this will work, but at times may be slightly sluggish so the other and cheaper option below. Becuase those adapters are expensive, I was thinking about trying a 1 to 4 HDMI splitter via the mini-DVI port. Becuase this is a splitter, I am not sure if the MacBook will see the each monitor separately or simply mirror the same thing over all three monitors. I think it will mirror - please let me know if that assumption is wrong. RAM: Currently I have 2GB of ram and frequently it gets very low - 100MB. Thoughts on upping the RAM to 4 or 8GB? Software: As for rotating the screen image and dealing with resolution issues, I am planning on using SwitchResX4. I have read that when rotating the image on the screen, there can be problems with the crispness of the text. Anybody have experience with this? I have been thinking about this for a little bit, but it is very possible I have missed something. Can you think of anything pertaining to the potential issues outlined above?
