I know that you can have Multiple Displays with a MacBook Pro, but I was wondering if there was a way of making that happen with just a regular old black MacBook? What I want is to have my MacBook on my desk with two nineteen inch flat panels, one being the primary and the other being the extended desktop. Any help here would be fantastic!

I know you can have mirroring and extended desktop on the MacBook (this is the 1st time the consumer notebook can do both) and I THINK you can have 2 external displays, where one is a mirror and the other is extended... but I am not 100% sure.

There is just one mini DVI output on the MacBook so there has to be some third party cable that can split the signal into two?

^ That will not work with a MacBook, since a MB has no PC Card slot.

That is for a PCMCIA slot which the MacBook doesn't have. Any other ideas? Or am I missing something?
