    Is this possible and if so how can I dual display a 13" MBP with an iPad 1 and iPad 2 (which I'll buy)?

    Cheers.

    I am not sure, but I doubt it. Also why on earth would you spend around $500 for two old gen iPads as monitors when you can get an amazing 23.6in Monitors with HDMI for $160 each?

    EDIT: The guy above seems to have the solution.

    I already have an iPad 1; the iPad 2 will cost me around 300 UK pounds brand new with a one year warranty.

    Does this work with two iPads? Thanks.

    Ah I see now. Anyways, it looks like it just connects from the app via bluetooth so it should be able to work with two iPads. Just gotta find some stands for your iPads :).

    It will not work with two iPads. I just tested it.

    I've read of users using 2 display apps with one Mac notebook. It was Airdisplay & DisplayPad I think, to successfully run 2 ipads as 2 external monitors for one notebook. This gets around the one iPad per app issue. (On quick search, I couldn't find the post-sorry.)

    I completely understand wanting more portable screen real estate.
