Hello.

Currently I have a white Macbook connected to a 22in monitor. And they are both turned on. I have another 22in monitor but there are not two mini-dvi ports on the Macbook. How can I connect two external displays and close the macbook display? (1680x1050 each display, instead of 1680x1050 and 1280x800 like now).

Thanks, Kiko.

As for the USB option:

We have added new driver support for Hi-Resolution up to 1280X1024 at 16-bit Color.
And the Matrox suggestion:

The DualHead2Go supports resolutions up to 2560 x 1024 in 16.7M colors at 60Hz stretched across two displays.
Neither one of those will support the kind of resolution needed for 2 22" screens. I don't think there's any feasible way to do what the OP is asking.

This is the best thing to se for multiple monitors. This card allows up to 4 externals I think. USB doesn't have eough bandwidth and performance will suffer. This card uses your express card slot and is high bandwidth.

people keep suggesting the VT card, but its PC Card, NOT express Card, so unless they have an express card version that i havent seen...it woulnt work.

I think Matrox has a unit called DualHead2Go that should help with what you are trying to do.
I would go with this, I've heard of it, and it would have the most bandwidth, though there may be a problem with max bandwidth, because the Macbook can only power such a certain size of a display. The DualHead2Go probably would work best with the MBP.
