    The only way you can drive two external monitors would be using the Matrox Dual or Triple head 2Go - but even then I'm not sure on the compatibility (or sensibility) in driving that off an MB

    That does work but the two monitors will be spanned as one big one.

    I know that Windows has software to improve the behavior of applications across the spanned screens.

    ok cool, what about if I upped the ante and attempted to drive two external monitors using a MBP, would that work and do you think everything run smoothly?

    MBP - same rule applies, you only have one output so you would have to use the Dual or Triple head 2Go
