    Hello all,

    I was thinking of ditching my 15" glassbook pro for a matte unit. However, I was thinking of just getting the single 9400 model. I was wondering if having this single video chip would affect my ability to run higher resolutions, and multiple monitors. As I recall, you can have two external monitors plus the 15" LCD.

    Thanks.

    Apple's notebooks only allow for one external display.

    The Matrox Dual Head doesn't count either so don't post it.

    Yes but you need something like this. I'm not sure how well 9400M can drive three displays though

    Oh, I think I was mistaken. I saw the dual-link DVI adapter for the 30" cinemas and figured you could run two separate monitors. That would be pretty cool if you could. :)
