There are several Universal Docking Stations that you can now get from several major manufacturers. The Toshiba Dynadock was one of the first to feature a single USB connecting docking station that also had a built-in graphics card. Through this docking station, you could effectively use 3 monitors simultaneously. Here's how:
- The LCD panel on your laptop is monitor #1
- A second monitor plugged into your laptop's VGA port
- A third monitor plugged into the docking station's VGA/DVI port
Now, Kensington has released the Universal Notebook Docking Station with VGA/DVI (and I believe that Targus and several others may have similar docking stations out there).
If you like to use multiple monitors via the "extended desktop" configuration, then adding a 3rd may not be a bad idea. One of the most cost effective ways of doing this is through one of these docking stations that has VGA/DVI built-in.
