Third monitor on your MacBook Pro? Sure!

All of this will be dramatically simpler once more Thunderbolt devices are around – the latest Macs now hav this super high speed port to connect multiple monitors, external drives and so on. For the rest of us slumming it with slightly older gear :

Now I just need a spare monitor or two and a long weekend to try some of these out!
