If you have tried hooking up 2 monitors to you laptop, then you know it generally cannot be done. I have found a solution that may have been highlighted here in the past. http://www.amazon.com/IOGear-Extern...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1263837614&sr=8-1 I just received this from Amazon and was able to hook up two monitors to my laptop. So I have the laptop screen and 2 other monitors to work off of. Great device and easy to install. I just plugged it in and it installed itself in minutes. My laptop by the way is the HP HDX18 with 18.4 inch screen. Great computer. Now they have the new ones out with the I7 processor which is simply amazing. The 18.5 inch laptop is not as portable as smaller laptops, but I wanted something where I can transport it somewhere when needed. I dont take my laptop out with me much, but wanted that option to be able to work in other places if required. Awesome machine and highly recommend. The best feature is the fingerprint scanner where I can access the computer quickly when booted with just a finger swipe versus typing in the password which takes a little time.
