    It took me some searching (so I understand you couldn't find it) but there's already a thread about this: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=616243

    I suggested display link (which is not the best choice), but you can also go with a display splitter. What this thing does is cut the input in twice. So for example you have 2 screens both 1280X1024, you connect everything, than you select the output of your macbook pro to 2560X1024, and the splitter thing divides the input in 2 outputs with one 1280X1024 and another1280X1024.
