I would like to connect my MacBook Pro 17 on two monitors DELL 3008WFP - 30 inch and being able to enjoy a 2560 * 1600 resolution on both monitor.

I've got a TripleHead2Go, unfortunatly it does not support 2560 * 1600

So I'm looking for a hardware connector which would support such a resolution on two 30 inch monitor using my MacBook Pro 17

Suggestions ?

There's nothing that will allow you to do that. The output on the MacBookPro only supports a maximum resolution of 2560x1600 (for the current model). There are USB display adapters, but those only aren't going to support 2560x1600 in any case.

You'd need a laptop that supported dual external displays, but then it wouldn't be a Mac.


Doing some searches, there is this: It is pretty expensive however. See this question.

I've already got a regular desktop Windows PC connected on those monitor on DVI1 and wanted to connect the MAC on DVI2. – Tarek Demiati Feb 4 '10 at 22:33
I did found this product too : 1/5 of what cost the Vidock2, and less bulkier too. Has anyone got any experience with the belkin ? – Tarek Demiati Feb 4 '10 at 23:20
That allows you to hook up a single monitor to two computers and switch between them (along with a keyboard and mouse) not one computer to two monitors. It's a completely different thing than the Vidock. – shf301 Feb 5 '10 at 3:01
Last time I was forced to use a MacBook Pro I installed Ubuntu on it, the NVIDIA Linux driver, and used the laptop display and an external monitor in dual-monitor mode. – PP. Mar 7 '10 at 14:31
