Laptop with multiple screens

hi everybody,
my ideal trading setup has been so far a desktop with four screens and I am now curious about using a laptop instead.
Can anybody share his/her experience trading with a laptop and multiple screens and what hardware layout you chose ?

thank you

Has anybody had any experience with the layouts described on BannRonn.com (see: "Dual or Multi-Monitor Laptop for Stock Trading" in the site) ?
thank you

I use a laptop with 2 additional external monitors for a total of 3 monitors. One of the external monitors is connected to the built-in vga output of the laptop to one external monitor, and the other external monitor is connected via USB using a usb to vga adapter (Micro Center - SIIG USB 2.0 to VGA Adapter JU-VG0012-S1)

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Matrox Dualhead 2 go

I use one of these. Plugs into VGA and USB.

I have two external screens and laptop screen.

Allows you to extend your desktop seemlessly over the three screens.

I trade Live and never had issues.

You can also get a Matrox Tripple Head 2 Go

You can get DVI versions as well.

MaxVista Multi Monitor Software

http://www.maxivista.com

From their site...


Quoting 
MaxiVista turns any spare Desktop, Laptop or Netbook PC into a dual monitor for your primary computer. No extra multi monitor hardware is required. Simply extend program windows across multiple screens as if it were one big monitor.

I bought a Pro license that allows up to four screens - pretty neat and works well (though I have GigE switches and all wired machines though I've even used it to connect to WiFi-connected laptops as well).

Not a true dedicated hardware solution, but thought I'd throw in a "satisfied customer" software-based offering.

-Guy

Choose a laptop with AMD/ATI Eyefinity.


You should be able to connect up to 3 monitors with no additional hardware, dongles or boxes.
