Dual-screen desktop computer set ups are nothing new. After all, they’re virtually a necessity for so many animators, graphic designers, and others of the creative ilk. Now Matrox is offering the TripleHead2Go, a device that can hook up to virtually any Windows PC running notebook computer, and connect to three additional external displays.
This is a follow-up to the company’s DualHead2Go, which, as you would guess, did the same thing except with only two ports. This device will truly make it worth your while to opt for the smaller, more compact notebook, because when you actually need to have a humungous display, you can.
Imagine having a gigantic 3840×1024 display spanning three 19-inch LCDs. Now imagine playing Quake 4 or Age of Empires III across three screens, ok ok and viewing your spreadsheets and presentations. Of course, you still have access to your laptop’s own display, bringing your total screen count up to four.
The Matrox TripleHead2Go will start shipping this April, with a suggested price of about $300. Of course, you’ll need to invest in a few more screens to make full use of this thing; that is, unless you happen to have three extra monitors kicking around.
