If you are havig trouble, an X6* w/ Untrabase X6 is a good substitute.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

Never, as that adapter will need to fit in a T6x Ultrabay (instead of the CD/DVD drive)

Yep. Tried it with an IOMEGA Zip drive and it worked. Seems like a real LPT port.

Actually instead, use a regular dock, that should have a LPT port.
