    question with another monitor
    okay, so im about to buy my MBP
    is it possible to hook up another monitor to it, so that i have my laptop + the monitor sharing the same screen?

    so.. say i didnt want a window that popped up in my mac screen, but decided i needed it so i can put it on my other monitor's screen?

    get it?

    i believe is it a minidvi port on the MBP so it would use a minidvi to a vga connector

    edit : sorry just looked on tha apple.com site.. and says it have a full DVI port on the MBP and (DVI to VGA adapter included)
