    Dual dVI display?
    Is there a DVI version of this, http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20051108-5539.html that works with Macbook Pro so I can have dual DVI displays?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    You would just use the DVI to VGA adapter that was included with your MBP and a VGA cable to connect to this device. Or get a DVI to VGA cable.

    Looks like it should work, but whether you can get it in the UK or not???
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    I was investigating this question, too, as I prepare to switch to a Mac. I've been thinking about he 24" iMac and eliminating my dual dispaly (or keeping a 20" LCD to the side), or going with a MBP if I could use dual displays (not the MBP screen). Thanks for the link to this product review. In addition, I found the following page on MAxtor's site which shows compatibility to the Macs (and even an option to hook up 3 screens). Looks like about $150-$170 online, depending on the store.

    Is anyone using this with a MB or MBP?

    Or you could wait for OSX drivers for this baby and pick up a USB hub:
