i have just bought a nice new MacBook and was wondering if i could use 2 external displays with it. i already am using a 19" Samsung and would like to also use my old G4 17" display instead of the actual Macbook screen to further extend my view. Is this possible with a special adapter or at all?
thanks, h.

Because you only have 1 DVI output port you will not be able to setup another display as a desktop extension. Getting an adapter will only mirror the video output... leaving you with 2 external displays showing the same thing =(
