    I just wanted to point this out before i send it back the Kensington Multidisplay Adapter is really aweful. What it does is allow you to add a monitor to your laptop using usb. it costs about 70 bucks and gets great reviews for some reason.

    anyway what i used it for was i wanted to hook both an external monitor and my cintiq to my apple laptop. the screen from the usb adapter was completely aweful. it was like someone turned off anti-aliasing. very hard to read small text. just all around bad for anyone who is into digital painting or photography or anything image sensitive.

    so if you have considered this before i just wanted to hint at that it may not be a good idea or buy.

    OWC sells better USB video adapters. They should work fine. However, they aren't designed for heavy graphics so gaming and such stuff will not work
