Jon: Hey guys, Jon here again. I am going to give you guys a walk through this time around my dual-screen monitor set-up and show you guys how to do it and explain to you what some of the cool features are, pretty simple. One thing you notice, I am obviously using a MacBook Pro to do this with a DVI port. You can do exactly the same thing with a MacBook that has a mini DVI port.
So to do this, all you need is a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter. I think it's something like $20 from the Apple Store, so pretty inexpensive to do this with a MacBook also. One other thing guys, if you want to check out some other cool reviews, one of the guys who frequently posts on my main page, his name is Eckofish, that's Eckofish, he is in my subscriptions, has some great videos also. He is just starting up and you just support and he is great with answering questions too if I don't know something, you can ask him or post over there and between the two of us, one of us should be able to have your questions answered. So anyway guys, enjoy. Any questions let me know. Thanks for watching and thank you guys for subscribing. Bye.
Hey guys, let's get started. Hopefully, you can see the screen so I can't really zoom in anymore with my camera and get them both in the picture, but I may do what we got. First thing, I've got the Mac plugged into the monitor with a standard DVI cable; it is on the right side of the MacBook Pro. Right here, no adapter or anything necessary, just plug it in, plug at the back of the monitor. And one cool thing, the monitor came with a whole bunch of drivers for Windows, this and that. I just plugged in with the Mac and it recognized it immediately, which is very cool.
So once you get your monitor plugged in, you have a couple of different options. If you go down to system preferences, and click on displays, much different options now. If you look here, I've got a main option here with display and even color. Now on the other monitor, it pulls up resolution. So, it actually knows already that you have two monitors and pulls up settings for each on separate screen, which is very cool. So resolution for one, color for one and color for the other, that's independent.
So on display, you can set the resolution of your monitor. This one here is 1680 by 1015. It automatically recognizes that. You click on arrangement and here is where you can select which monitor you want to be your primary. If you have a few pictures, you can drag them anywhere you want to make it the way you want it to look, and a little white bar across the top is this main toolbar, wherever you drag that is your main monitor, so you can move it either way. You also have an option to mirror the image as well, so have the same thing shown on both.
So that's how you get your dual-monitor s working. Now, I've it set up pretty much as one giant monitor. If you look, I can move that over and it's being treated now as just one big monitor, which is very nice. Preferred things like, browsing the web or doing some programming and opening up iTunes for example, I can have iTunes opened and playing right here, opened and playing while I am doing something else, so I'll be able to see the whole window, which is really nice.
But I recently discovered the world of torrents and such. So, I've been using Paralog a little bit more, I don't want to take a chance. They have a dream putting a virus on Mac, which I know is next to impossible to do but I don't want to risk it. So this set-up is actually very cool for parallels, something I want to show you. So, I open up parallels and this only work with virtualization software. It won't -- you just do this with Boot Camp. So let me turn it on for you and show you guys some magic that's pretty cool. Here, a second for load, so strange thing, Windows XP on the Mac, but it works. By the way, if anybody is in the market for a monitor, I picked up the 22 inch HP w2207. It's a glossy widescreen monitor and it's awesome. I really like it. I've got two USB ports which are really handy, so some of you guys are in the market.
Alright, so now I've got parallels up and running. If I move parallels over to my secondary window right here and I make it full-screen, and hitting 'Alt-Enter', full rotation. Now I've got windows full-screen here and my OS10 full screen. I can use them both at the same time and have two full-screens, which is really cool; I mean it's like having two separate computers running at once. Even though it's a full screen, I can still use that window if I need. I can still drag that over if necessary. But it makes life a lot easier for doing anything need to do in Windows, whether it's torrents or Microsoft Office or anything you are doing, it's just very handy.
This has been a kind of real quick overview of the dual-monitor set-up on the Mac and honestly guys, to set this whole thing up took three minutes and most of that was plugging it in to the other Macintosh and Apple in particular makes it really easy to do. I was shocked with my PC, it took forever to get things set-up. So my guys, that's a dual-monitor. Like I said, in kind of conclusion you can set it up to be two separate monitors to use independently, which kind of like what I have now. Have it treat as one big monitor if you like or have it being mirrored and show the same image. We're also now with -- let me close Parallels guys. I know some people might want to use their computer in show mode and still so use the monitor. That's something I will show you guys here once I quit out of parallels, shutdown, turn off. With two monitors, you can also show mode meeting, keep your laptop closed and use your external display as your primary only monitor, something that you can do and do it very easily.
I am going to show you how to do that right now with parallel I do, pick your computer, close it, turn it on like normal, close it up. It's going to go to sleep, like it normally would. Alright, so the computer is essentially at sleep now, which means you turn the monitor off. Monitor is going to sleep, as you can see. To wake it up, actually you can just push a button, any button on the keyboard, give it a second to wake up. Now, with the monitor and there you go.
Now I've got my computer working in client-show mode with only one monitor. That's an easy, so there is another option for you guys. With the computer closed, it doesn't get any higher than it did with an open like normal, still stays at pretty standard temperature of about a 140 degrees Fahrenheit. I don't know what they are in Celsius for you European folk and Canadian. But see, it's the same temperature.
So guys, this is a just real quick overview of the dual-monitor system. If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for watching. Thanks for subscribing. Hope you have a good afternoon and night or evening. This is Jon4lakers signing off.
