    FWIW: Provantage sells a Trendnet USB to DVI/VGA adaptor for $63.95.



    "USB - VGA Adapter. The USB to DVI / VGA Adapter uses a USB port on your computer to connect to a high definition DVI or VGA monitor. Connect your desktop or laptop to a DVI monitor and experience the visual impact of 32-bit True Color Depth technology and a sparkling 1600 x 1200 high definition image."

    You might try finding reviews somewhere. Keep us updated if you use the adaptor.

    Very good question. Technically YES becuase DisplayPort is supposed to be able to daisy-chained like firewire technology. I don't know if a special splitter box is needed or not, but i doubt it, I think the circuitry in the monitor itself should handle it.



    So the issue here is , does the LED Cinema Display has another female mini-DP plug for daisy-chaining ?. Did not see that stated in the specifications of the display. What ?. Apple is going to sell us a $50 splitter ?. Or worse still a $99 powered Dual-DVI like thingy with mini-DP out instead of of DVI ?.
