    I have a MacBook with the Mini-DVI to DVI adapter.

    I am wondering if it is possible to run dual external monitors. Thanks.

    As in your macbook monitor and an external one? Yes, use the adapter... If you mean 3 displays total you'll have to add some hardware to do that.

    @aaronw1986,

    Thanks for the reply, yeah I mean two external monitors, not the MacBook lcd. What hardware do I need, can you recommend brands/models? Thanks.

    You'd need the Matrox Dual-Head2Go and depending on the resolutions, the DVI-Dual Link adapter as well I'd wager.

    @NewMacbookPlz,

    That looks perfect, but Yikes, $144 on NewEgg. Anything a bit cheaper?
