    Hello folks,

    I will be buying a new MBP as soon as the lastest upgrade comes around. So what do I need to drive a two external monitors? I am assuming I will have to install a video card. i checked on the apple website with the chat feature and asked the same question, but the tech first spouted off something about a second hard drive, then said she thinks the onboard video card will drive two monitors. Anyway, i would appreciate some help here....again. Thanks.

    Can't do it with one DVI port. There was some chat about an express card second graphics card, but that would be the only way. You could always hook up a second and use the built in one, but you can't have to external monitors. You can't install another graphics card in a laptop. You might want to look into a Mac Pro.
