So I've been heavily researching about the whole "ViDock" thing that's floating around. Apparently, you can easily adapt a desktop, external, video card along with your MBP or whatever laptop you wish as long as it has a Expresscard 34 or 54 slot. So this is what I have running now. I'm using a ViDock 4 (http://www.villageinstruments.com/tiki-index.php?page=ViDock) not the Plus model, just regular, along with a nVidia GT240, 512MB GDDR5 128-Bit, desktop video card. This is all running off of my First Generation MacBook Pro, 17". Specs are: 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo T2600 2GB DDR2-667MHz Ram 500GB Seagate Hybrid XT 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive 256MB ATi Mobility Radeon X1600 17" Matte 1680x1050 Display Here's a few pictures that I took, very quickly with my iPhone. Not the best pics in the world, but shows some of the setup. I am running this off of Windows 7 and not OSX. The card I'm using isn't compatible with OSX (GT240), so I can't run it in OSX even if I wanted to. Here's also a youtube video of me playing Star Trek Online. External screen is driven by the GT240 while the internal screen runs off the X1600 concurrently. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eKu7rvaW4I Currently, video is still processing... should be ready in a few minutes.
