Default using dual displays with iBook, eMac and FP iMac

Yes, you can use a second display with all of the new "consumer" Macs.
I am very happily using a 700mhz iBook with a 17" blue and white studio display at 1280x1027@75hz in extended desktop mode without any problems. I use the larger screen for the edit window and the smaller built in screen for the mix window.
The stand on the studio display allows me to set the ibook on a table and the top of it's screen come to just under the studio display. All in all it is a very good setup. This is a very good way to add some extra screen real estate to your "consumer" Mac for almost any app.
Note that only the latest models are capable of this.
Here is a link where you can find out more about this: Extended Desktop
