Mac mini with Dual Displays
Sunday February 12, 2006 3:50 AM EST

Mac mini enthusiasts have been looking for a way to get dual displays working with their computer for the last year. Well, we have some good news to report! Aniel of Firefall Pro has posted some pictures and information about his Mac mini setup with dual displays. He's using Matrox's new DualHead2Go video solution to split the signal between two 17" Westinghouse LCDs and extend the desktop.

"One of the things that dissatisfied me most about using a mini day in and day out was the inability to drive dual monitors. Up until extremely recently, there was simply no way to achieve a very wide display. But then my own personal Christmas came, and I discovered the Matrox dualHead2Go. Many many posts and reviews have discussed this device since it came out. But what is it?

Simply put, this box acts as a splitter for a VGA signal. It effectively takes one VGA input, and splits each horizontal line in half, and feeds one half to one VGA output, and the other half to the (you guessed it) other VGA output. Unfortunately, according to Matrox, it's only supported under Windows. Well, I'm happy to say that this jigger works great under OS X too," writes Aniel for Firefall Pro.

We would like to congratulate Aniel on getting the two displays up and running, and thank Mike for the tip.
