    Hay all, i have a dell precision m65. And i'd like to run two monitors from it, so i can put the laptop out of sight, and use it as a desktop when home. I dont want the laptop on the desk, or use the laptop 15.4 as one of the screens. It only has one vga out tho.

    Im guessin the best option would be a dock? but there bit pricy and im having trouble finding compatible ones easy. Is there any way to cheat and just split the vga out put or something similar?:wallbash:

    thanks :)

    If you would split the VGA cable to two, you would just get two of the same picture. :thumb:

    The Matrox is the only way I've seen of doing it.

    The only other way is to get a widescreen monitor...
