    Hi guys!


    Now that 24"+ displays are so cheap, I am looking to add a 2nd to my setup, but is it at all possible on the MBP?? Can mini-displayport drive 2x 1920x1xx0 displays???

    Yes, buy you'll need something like the Matrox Dual Head2Go, and those are pricey. In the range of 150 to 200. I've seen other competing devices to allow this, but the price point is nearly the same.

    You may get a usb to video output but the last time I read about this, it some some constraints that didn't make it feasible. You may want to google that option.

    Matrox Dual Head2Go is a bad solution for Mac users (works great for Windoze). You'll want to check out reviews on this product before you buy.
