    Hi Everyone,

    I have two NEC 22" Multisync CRT Monitors and was curious if I can hook one or both of them up to my MBP so I can have an expanded desktop.

    I am looking to move from PC to Mac but wanted to see if I can salvage my monitors. Thanks for help in advance.

    Definitely one, but you'll need a special adapter if you're going to try two.

    I believe the DVI-VGA adapter still comes with MBPs, so you should be all set out-of-the-box for hooking up one.

    Yes, you can easily hook one up! two might be possible, but it would require additional hardware, I think matrox makes things to let you split a laptop so it can hookup two monitors. If the monitors are VGA, you will need a DVI adapter for the MBP.

    Cool! Thanks guys for your help. I was really hoping I could hook at least one up. This is my first Apple computer since I had an Apple IIGS when I was a kid and the main thing I remember about that was that I could never hook up the monitor I wanted to. LoL.

    Thanks again.
