I am thinking of buying one and using Ubuntu as my main operating system ... does anyone know if the dual head capabilities work out of the box?

claims the video card works but doesn't mention dual head.

I really like using 2 monitors and have had problems with this before on a IBM Thinkpad R50e.

Thanks in advance,
James

Yup, dual head works out of the box perfectly :-)
