Wow! Check it out!
So I can connect this box up to my laptop and have three INDEPENDENT screens? The mouse moves across all three screens and I can drag and drop windows into them...must I have a certain card in my laptop to be compatible with this?
Actually, you can have up to 4 screens. They have a minimum 300 RAMDAC is all... runs off of VGA port.
What happens to my laptop screen? How much does it cost? Do I need Windows XP or will it also work on my old machine that has windows 98?
The DualHeadToGo is only $169, plus with the laptop screen your at 3 displays.
More info on the TripleHeadToGo....
I don't know all that stuff. Check with Matrox website. As for display, you can have your laptop as Display #1, and the huge 3-monitor screen [extended desktop] as #2, if your laptop supports.
So I am just adding a second screen essentially...I could plug in a Samsung LCD 19" and use it analog...
The reason I ask, is I thought if i bought one of those LCD TV's I would get more screen real estate. That is simply not true as everything is bigger. TV's are viewed from a distance...
They only support MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ® 2000 and WindowsÂ® XP.
From the Matrox website:
Can I use the integrated display in my laptop in addition to a TripleHead2Go for a total of four screens?
Cost will be $299 and it will be availabe in April '06.
