Don't arse about with crappy adapters that aren't supported. Bust out the 30" ACD and revel in it's enormity. Seriously - it's bloody huge.breadz said:as of now, there is no way to get 16xx by 12xx on 2 external monitors on a macbook pro correct?
ive read that the matrox adapter only will support 1080 by 960 on 2 dual monitors.
no, the MBP will run the 30" ACD at full res. (2560x1600), side by side the internal MBP screen (1440x900 or 1680x1050).
Also 2.3 mpx vs. 4 mpx, but I competely agreew with you. The 30" is overkill, and unless you just wanna go gung ho with latets and greatest, a 23" is whatever will serve you and your wallet best.Trekkie said:I chickened out and got the 23". an extra grand for 7" just didn't work out for me. I can always add one later though
No, really, I didn't know that, I always though you need some super duper gpu power to power that 30"

Connect your new MacBook Pro to an Apple flat panel display. Choose a 20-inch Cinema, 23-inch Cinema HD or even the 30-inch Cinema HD Display and connect directly to your MacBook Pro through its DVI port. The 30-inch display takes advantage of the MacBook Pro's support for dual-link DVI.
Ouch - according to Apple, it's not just 7"...Trekkie said:I chickened out and got the 23". An extra grand for 7" just didn't work out for me. I can always add one later though
