    I have an iMac 24''. Can I do dual monitors (not cloned, but extended)? Will the dual monitors work in Boot Camp under Windows XP/Vista/7?

    If you have the newest iMac, you will need a Mini-Displayport to VGA or DVI adapter depending on your monitor's connector.

    If you have the previous generation, you will need a Mini-DVI to VGA or DVI adapter.

    i used to do it on my 24 inch iMac. It's a lot of fun at first, but if you run games or something like that, the comp runs faster and cooler without it.
