Hi, guys...

About 3-4 months ago, I came across a device that lets you run external
monitors through the USB port on my Dell laptop.

By adding a USB hub, I'm able to string together three external monitrors (I
could have up to six), which when combined with the one exrternal monitor
that us supported by Windows and laptop monitor, allows me to currently
run five monitors.

Following is a link to a picture of my desk at work where I'm running the
five monitors.

The device runs about $60 each (1 per monitor) and can be bought online, I
bought mine at Best Buy.

Just thought you might like to know of some options out there.
