To date there is no way to run a more than one external monitor from a MBP in the conventional sense. At least the last time I checked there was no PC card video adapter. However there is a box out there that splits the video from the DVI into 2 DVI's and allows a single video connection (up to the rez of a 30" monitor) to span 2 smaller monitors. Of the many downsides to this approach is that the menu bar will be split in two.
This is one of my few complaints with the MBP. My teammates Dells can run two monitors (one from DVI and one from VGA) however I notice that they never use the screen of the laptop itself when the machine is thus docked.

Hello everybody, I am a college student and I have a very nice 24" LCD monitor that I use with my regular laptop, but I wasn't sure if you had to buy an Apple monitor for a Mac laptop or if the connections are all the same? Can you use a regular LCD HP Monitor with a APPLE MAC Laptop? Please help with your great knowledge and experience. Thanks for your help.
OOps. Just checked the website since i am getting ready to order another laptop and the connector is no longer included - you'll need a specialized adapter from apple that can be ordered when you order the laptop.
