    Hey everyone!

    I currently am on my first mac, my blackbook I have owned since Dec 06.

    I LOVE macs now.

    I am a stock trader and am looking to upgrade to a new trading station. I have always went custom built route with win xp pro. This time I am thinking of getting an Imac. I'd get the 2.4, 24inch. I'd upgrade the ram separate to 4gb. This would obviously be plenty to run xp pro in bootcamp.

    My main concern is I need screen space for charting software. Currently I run a 24 inch monitor with a 20 inch on each side. Would the imac be able to run the two 20 inch monitors? I think it can only run 1, just making sure.

    Thanks

    Nope - the iMac will only run a single external screen. If you want three or more screens, you're going to have to look at a Mac Pro, which can take multiple video cards, allowing you to run two screens off each.
