    Can a macbook have two external displays not including the macbooks own display? i know the macbook pro can, but im not sure about the macbook any feedback will be appreciated.

    Might be greedy but i would love that much realestate on my macbook when not on the go :p

    You say in your sig you want a time capsule and a airport express. A time capsule is a hard drive with an airport express. So why do you want both.

    Okay but if you purchased a Time Capsule and an Airport Express, then you would have 2 Airport Express's. A Time capsule is an Airport with a hard drive.

    Or did I just read it all wrong?

    Time Capsule is an Airport Extreme with a hard drive.

    Airport Express is the smaller version with remote speaker capability.

    No, MB can only drive one external display. MBP can only drive two externals with an external box that splits the dual link signal.
