    Is there any way to have a MacBook Pro and connect to two 30" Cinema Displays?
    I know I can drive one but I heard if I get a card I can run a second display. Is that true? I don't want mirroring.
    Thanks

    There are USB solutions but they max out @1920x1200 so you won't be able to get full advantage of the 2560x1600. AFAIK, there is no way to run them both at native res :(

    As far as I could find online the ViDock is not compatible with the unibody MacBook Pro.

    it's only compatible with certain generations of the MacBook Pro (2 and 4), 1 if the DVI and internal monitor is not in use. My question is do we get the 512 or the 256mb video ram? And are there better cards for us today that will work in the the dock better than the Standard Card: ATI 4670 512MB DDR3 128bit. I really wish Apple would have done this or given the new MBP line dual display capability like the macmini out of the box
