    Question New MBPs, Multiple Displays?

    Hi Guys,

    Just curious, I read something online ages ago about the new Mini Display Port from Apple and it said in the article that you can run more than 1 monitor off the port. Is this correct? I spent a good 20 minutes scouring through my net history to find it and couldn't. Ideally looking to be able to run 2 external screens off a new MBP.

    Regards,

    .Joel

    This is correct in theory: the DisplayPort spec allows for it.
    In practice though, we're not there yet and you can't do it at the moment. Possibly in the future if Apple moves towards ATi graphics in their laptops.

    Right now your options are a ExpressCard video card, or a USB video adaptor.
