    Hi

    I've searched the forums but can't find an answer for this ....

    If I buy a MBP can I attach 2 ACDs to it? If yes, how?

    If I only attach 1 ACD, can I have the MBP screen showing one file (say a Word doc) and the ACD showing another file (say a PDF)?

    With thanks

    The MBP only has one output, so only one screen. There is a Matrox device that allows two, relatively low resolution, displays attached. There is a thread kicking around where someone claims that a DVI splitter is allowing two screens but non-one else can get it to work.

    Getting on to the second question: yes you can span or mirror. In spanning mode you can have different things on each screen.
