    This really bugs me.

    I work in 4 offices including home office.

    At work, I therefore use 3 stupid PC's.

    If only I could run dual external screens of a macbook pro!!!!!!

    This would resolve stupid PC's and Stupid data here there and everywhere.

    MBP screen plus one external screen. Or there are USB screens you can get for secondary information - eg mimo 7" touchscreens.

    dual external screens buddy :)

    I already have 8 screens, don't want to replace them all.

    It's great when you have say two 19" 4:3 screens to work with, really productive.

    updated the post with two more from that company. The expresscard one is $249 so more palatable. The USB one is $129. (might not be any good for games, but maybe ok for more static work)?

    edit. That $249 one is cardbus so won't work..

    Richard, you legend!!!!

    Do you use dual screens?

    The alternative would be for me to buy a 30" and if somehow I could "stick" the windows into place, like you can in windows 7, then that would be amazing!!!!

    The choices now!!!

    Excellent stuff.

    I was going to suggest 1 x 30" plus you'd still have the MBP's screen for little bits and pieces!
