    I currently have a 15"MBP unibody with the mini-display port to VGA adaptor connected to my 23" display. I just inherited a DLP projector and wanted to add it to the setup. I currently have to unplug the VGA from my 23"display and hook it up to the projector every time i want to use it.

    Is there a way i could have them all hooked up at the same time. Either Switchable to the 23" or the projector...or possibly run both at the same time?

    I'm wondering if maybe this could work? The second monitor and the projector would display the same thing.

    you could make the project be the display of a second mac, and then use Teleport to essentially make it a second monitor for you.

    /edit: Or, the easy way, is to get a USB to DVI output, and run the projector off that...Like this one: http://www.iogear.com/product/GUC2020DW6/
