    I'm currently using my 15" MBP with a 17" external display, giving me two nice-sized screens, but I want more screen real estate. I'd like to hook a second external monitor up.

    Any recommendations on how to do this?

    I'm obviously using the Thunderbolt port for the external display currently. I have a free firewire port and I can free up a USB port.

    Any ideas welcome.

    Mini Display Port to Dual-Link DVI adaptor and then connect via DVI? If you get an Apple Thunderbolt Display you won't have any problems and you won't have to buy adaptors. Just connect your Mac to the TBDisplay and then connect the other to the TB Display.
