    Multiple Monitor Software
    I'm looking for some good software to configure multiple displays. When I was on my pc I used multimon, does anyone know anything similar for mac?

    What is it you want to do?

    OSX handles multiple monitors - so does Windows. I use multiples on both OSes, never needed any other software.

    For a mac though, if you want to do screen spanning, you need either a iMac (I think the 17" ones dont do it..), a mac pro or a macbook pro... other wise you need to use a hack...
    Mac Pro (Early 2009) 8 Core 2.26 GHz, 6 GB Ram, 640 GB Drive. Dell 2408WFP.

    Ah, OK.

    The G5 Powermac does it OK too. I just assumed if it had the hardware to connect another (or more) monitors, OSX would handle it.

    All New macs do it, except the mini for obvious reasons.

    Still not true

    All intel Macs can handle screen spanning (except the Mac mini as it only has 1 display port).

    iBooks and iMac G4's and G5's needed to use the screen spanning doctor tool to enable spanning, but intel iMacs as well as Macbooks can do it out of the box.
