    now i'm using a one-to-two VGA adaptor to connect 2 displays to my

    MBP at the same time, of course they are sharing the same signal, so I'm

    getting the same feed on those two displays, and I can only adjust one

    resolution for those two. My question is that how can I hook up the 2nd

    extra display and let it showing a different image???

    thank you guys very much...

    You got a splitter which just duplicates the video. You need a combo box like a Matrox DualHead2Go or TripleHead2Go

    I just got a DualHead2Go today and it really works well. I bought the digital version so I could attach monitors with resolution greater than 1280 and attached two 22" monitors that do 1680x1050 for a total of 3360x1050 PLUS the screen in the MBP itself. The only boneheaded thing about the unit is that it's powered from the USB port which are in short supply on the MBP. I tried a powered hub but no dice, it was the laptop or nothing. Otherwise is was definately a good buy.
