Currently Being ModeratedMar 6, 2009 12:21 PM (in response to dbrandt6)It shouldn't be a problem, based on everything I've read including the tech specs for the mini. You'd connect one monitor to the mini-DVI port via a mini-DVI to DVI adapter, and one monitor to the mini-DisplayPort via a mini-DisplayPort to DVI adapter.iMac 2.8 Core 2 Duo 24" 4GB ATI 2600, Mac OS X (10.5.6), PowerMac G5 2.0GHz DP, Dell w/ Windows Vista Unlimited SP1
Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2009 9:26 PM (in response to dbrandt6)I also have that same question. *I went to the apple store and none of the genius knew how to make it work.* *They said it's not possible to connect two displays or monitors to the new mac mini because it only has one graphics card. The mini dvi and the mini displayport are both connected to the graphics card.* I showed them the apple site and the site clearly said you can connect 2 displays. Does someone know if you can connect 2 displays or monitors and if so how can you do it.Powerbook G4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2009 9:44 PM (in response to pinadrummer)It should work just like Dave Sawyer said. It doesn't matter if it has only one graphics card. The card in the new mini supports a multiple monitor setup. The older minis don't.
