    I just received my new mac mini today and hooked it up to two Samsung SyncMaster 2443BWX and it works great! Zero lag and no problems.

    Just thought I'd let anyone know who was thinking about doing it.

    I assume you used both connectors and can use them as one giant desktop. Can't wait to try that myself.

    I can't find that mini displayport adapter anywhere or I would have tried it by now. I guess I will need to order it over the Internet or drive to an Apple store.

    Cheers,

    Pokernut...

    You did this using both video ports on the minimac and DVI on the monitors? So you had to buy one Apple adaptor cable (the one that doesn't come with the minimac.) Right?

    I used the adapter that came with the Mini to hook up my original monitor, then purchased the mini displayport to DVI from the Apple store to connect the second monitor. I use it as an extended desktop, so there's lots of room to work with.

    Good to hear! Going to be using a Dell 2709 plus Cintiq 12wx and, unlike with my MacBook Pro, SIMULTANEOUSLY... :eek: the Mac I've been waiting for for years!
