Samsung Chromebook external monitor support?

I am interested in purchasing a Samsung Chromebook, but was wondering if it supports an external monitor? I am used to using a 24" monitor, so I'm concerned this may have too small of a monitor for me. I need an external monitor - preferably dual-monitor setup.

Yes there willl be as the offical specs state atm that their will be a Mini VGA connector. Which you will most likey need an adaptor piece to connect to your 24"

Does ChromeOS support dual monitor setups? I've never even tried.

You would think it would have to, so you can have a browser in one window and an app in the other. I'm looking forward to finding out.

A mini-vga port is better than nothing I suppose, and I guess it was kind of necessary for size reasons. I certainly wouldn't complain if adapters were shipped with the models, either...

But there's just no way Google would leave multi-desktop support out altogether.
