Using 2 monitors and span the desktop across both.

But seeing as the mac mini doesn't have 2 video outputs I can't do that.

I was just wondering if everyone with a mini that they have spanned across two monitors could share how they did so.

I need to do this but I don't know how I would go about it other than buying that adapter I forgot what it was called.

I wanted a less expensive way to use multiple monitors on the mini without buying very expensive hardware...

Does no one really know that dual head means 2 monitors on one computer?

Thank you bryphotoguy that seems just like what I need. I was also looking into the device called dualhead2go. But the piece of hardware you suggested is half the price and I'm definatly liking that so thanks a lot.

If anyone else has any more hardware or software solutions for it let me know.

Thanks again!
