    Hey guys,
    I just got a new 23" ACD from a friend! I already have a 24" LED ACD connected to a 2008 unibody mbp (specs below). What are the best solutions for connecting the second monitor without sacrificing speed? Thanks for any help. :D

    You can use this to achieve what you're looking for.

    A bit pricey but any solution for using 2 external monitors may be pricey. The matrox dualhead is probably one of the more popular solutions AFAIK

    Hey, you can use the Diamond BVU 195. Its a USB > DVI adapter that uses Displaylink technology. Just google for the model. If you live in the US you can get a cheap price for it. Since Im in Canada I had to buy online for about 80$. It's on its way, and it should be here in about 2 weeks. I can let you know how it works! It's supposed to work well for most things but obviously it will lag when playing full screen HD video etc.
