    Connecting Two 24" LED Cinema Displays to MacBook Pro
    I have two of these, and I want to use them both with the Macbook Pro.

    Any way to do this?

    I'm assuming it would have to be some sort of offboard device to connect both monitors and then connect to the MacBook Pro.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here is some info. Many of the options seem to be either not doable, not reliable, or are expensive:

    yah, read both of those articles. i don't think there is a way to do what i want.

    the cinema led monitors have the dv connector, a usb, and a mag power plug that charges the macbook.

    i'm thinking that anything that may do it would have to be something manufactured by apple or a higher end accessories company. you'd need an offboard unit i suppose with two mag power connectors, two usbs, and two dv connectors, then that would connect to the macbook pro with a dv connector, a usb, and a mag power connector.

    its killing me that i have two monitors sitting here and i can only use one of them.
    haha.

    Well, you could always give (or sell for super cheap) one of them to me.
    hehe
