    Forgive me if this question is at all repetitive, I searched and did not find something similar.

    I have a Mid-2010 MacBook Pro and wanted to clone my desktop to my Dell 24" model and a 1080P HDTV monitor I just mounted in my den. What is the most effective cost/benefit solution available to complete this setup. I only want to clone the display on both monitors, I have no desire to extend them.

    The resolution on the Dell is 1920*1200 and the HDTV is 1080P. The HDTV has an available VGA and HDMI connection.

    You need something like the DualHead2Go from Matrox, but know, that the display with the lowest resolution determines the maximum resolution used on all three, thus two displays will have a lower than native resolution, except when all displays have the same native resolution, but the MBP is limited to either 1440 x 900 or 1680 x 1050 pixel.

    Maybe with the Matrox

    I have an HIS Mutiview II and now use a total of 4 monitors including the built in. Before the splitter I would use the HIS to power a 19" at 1024x768 MDP to DVI for the 24 at 1920x1080 and then the integrated screen. Now I split off the HIS and run 2 19" along with the 24" and the laptop display..

    The HIS will push 2048x1152 with no lag..
