    Just curious can use both to drive the 24" LED ACD AND another 2nd monitor via mini dvi?? That would be a dream come true!

    That would be awesome. But we won't know until the Mini is actually released.

    I'm going to say yes but why are you asking this before it is even released? :confused:

    Most likely.

    And we're not positive that's the new mini.

    Indulge me:

    What's your justification with this?

    I want to know because I already own the 24" LED ACD and if I do buy the top end mac mini I'd like to buy a 2nd cheaper monitor to use it in dual monitor mode and free up my 15" mbp.

    Uh... it isn't out? It might not even be real? What more justification do you need?

    Said product exists in magical limbo right now and not reality. How can anything that I say about it be true or even confirmed?

    You're giving an answer on no real facts. Just rumors.

    Of course, why else would they include 2? That is, of course, assuming that they will include 2 ports.

    I will eat my hat if it has both mini-DVI and mini-DisplayPort.

    With mDP you can run a 30" monitor - I assume a DualHead2Go solution will come out someday so you can run two monitors of lower resolution.

    I don't think it would worth it. The MBP would still have better performance with the 9600m and the faster processor with more cache.

    I would think the mac mini would have almost the same speed as the current unibody macbooks so it wouldnt perform bad at all on the 24" LED ACD.

    I really want to just hook it up and play movies on the 24" LED so that I can use the 15" mbp to do everything else.
