i was wondering if it mattered what laptop you have and whether or not you can connect any laptop to multiple screens. i'm a casual gamer and thinking of getting a toshiba satellite s70t-b005 or a toshiba satellite p70-a0lx but i'm not quite sure what laptop i want yet(might not be either of these) please help???:)

yes.. If you get a laptop with "displayport" you can run up to 5 monitors - depends on what resolutions

Sure there are other options.

You might as well forget trying to game on triple monitors with a laptop..

Maybe if you got a lot of money to throw down on a high end Alienware or MSI.

Go pro and build a triple monitor pc and show us pics :)
