    Another question...
    Hey again,

    Just asking, is it possible to connect more monitors to an iMac? I am often looking at many different things at once and being able to see more is useful. However, looking at the QTVR of the iMac it dosen't seem possible. Can anyone clear this up?

    You need a mini-DVI to DVI (or VGA depending on what your second monitor uses) adapter and you are good to go

    I'm not sure about the new Intel iMacs, but You can only mirror the display on a PPC iMac, not expand the desktop. There are nasty hacks to get it working, but they may void your warranty. One such way is 'Screen Spanning Doctor'. All it does is change a setting, but it only works with a limited range of PPC machines. Intel machines are not supported.

    Unless I am mistaken, all of the Intel Macs now allow for screen spanning without the need for a hack like SSD.
