    You need another piece of hardware, which falls into one of two major categories:

    1) A Matrox Dualhead2go is a device that "tricks" your laptop into thinking that the two displays are a single display. Due to this trick, it has some limitations, but provides good graphics performance. The device costs between $100-200.

    2) A USB graphics card, such as the EVGA UV Plus+, which run about $60. These devices give you another display without tricking your computer, but do not offer the same level of graphics performance that the Matrox does. These are great for looking at big spreadsheets/documents, but not great for movies or games.

  • Hello, John G from Madison. I really don't think it "tricks" anything to think two displays are one. That would mean mirroring. It really does provide extended desktop–– or it would be worthless.
