    Hey, I have the unibody MacBook Pro with the mini-display port. I have a 17" Dell monitor and as a few members know, I plan to buy another monitor (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=774350). I was just wondering, as the title suggests, if it is possible to connect both to my MacBook Pro?

    -Please reply with any help you can provide,

    -Thanks,

    -VeX.

    It's possible, but don't think you can do it just with what you have. You'd have to get something like this

    Matrox TripleHead2Go 2x 1920x1200 monitors or three 1680x1050 ones.

    Basically, it takes one big resolution and spans it across both monitors. However, in the cases of the two large resolutions, the monitors have to support a 57Hz refresh rate. idk about the three 1680x1050... Of course, you could attach any number of monitors, assuming they were the same size. I should note a user here had some problems with it and some audio programs.

    But it might be a good solution, in this case. USB->DVI works too, but I never really liked the concept too much.
