Any general advice about trading from a laptop is welcomed - I've used a laptop, but not on the go. I currently have a desktop setup, but need some mobility. I don't require much in terms of performance, and a netbook would probably do the job. The important requirements are something that is comfortable to carry, and with the ability to run 3-4 monitors. I've looked at the various solutions, and barring ultra-expensive options, it looks like the most simple solution would be to get a laptop with two display outputs (hdmi/DP/dvi + vga), and then run 1 or 2 usb adaptors. I've been checking around for laptops with two outputs, but I'd like any suggestions people may have. Matrox doesn't appear to be a solution for me. The resolution on the triplehead is limited, and the dualhead only offers one more, and it would be cheaper just to get a usb apaptor instead. Docking stations don't seem to be worthwhile unless I can find something that supports a gpu. Otherwise I'm just getting two displays, which isn't of much use if I'm getting a laptop that can already run two (though it might be 2x dvi rather than dvi+vga). How about having a desktop driving the monitiors, and run the applications from the laptop? I'm aware of maxivista, and I suppose I could use it to run 3, and then another 1 or 2 from the laptop. I do have a question - do most laptops with two outputs support dual external monitors? The ones I've tried have, but I'd have to order something, only to find that it forces me to use the laptop monitor.
