Notebook Driving Two Displays

Anonymous
Not applicable
I have two NVIDIA cards in my deskstop system to drive two displays. I'm looking to purchase a laptop (Windows based) & I definitely want it to have the ability to drive two monitors (hard to go back to one). Does anyone have experience with a Windows laptop with the capability of driving two displays?

Thanks,

Don

My ThinkPads have supported dual monitors since my first one in 1999. Keep in mind that one of the monitors is the built-in screen. Dual EXTERNAL monitors may not be an option (at least I don't know of any).

Hi Don, I am using a Sager Laptop (4780) purchased from
http://pctorque.com/ & a 19" LCD from Costco. Working Great. Some adjustment due to different screen resolutions.

Some Posts about my Dual monitors:

I suppose you can use the external VGA from your "primary" notebook and then use MAXIVista (see below) to utilize the 2nd display of the spare notebook/desktop
