    What will I need to hook up two monitors to my MacBook Pro? My idea is to buy two 22", 23", or two 24" monitors. Which size I haven't determined yet. It may really depend on what kind of specials I run into.

    Advice? Tips? Do I need to buy any convertors/extensions? All I have been told is to make sure the monitors support DVI. But, since my MacBook Pro only has a single DVI port, how will I hook up two monitors?

    One of the gentleman I work with uses a device from Matrox which splits the signal from what your computer thinks is a very large single display into two. I think he runs 3840x1200

    Are special drivers needed to get the Mac to output video to the USB port?
