    So does this mean that on a laptop using intel drivers, one could actually plug in an external monitor and specify that the internal "LVDS" panel *stays* primary? Thus avoiding the screen reorder and having your panels fly to the external screen?

    Fabulous!

    As far as I know, it doesn't. The opensource radeon and radeonHD does support it instead.

    I am hoping so too! The Dell Mini 9 has a max screen resolution of 1024x600, so I am also hoping that the transform option will allow me to transform it to 1024x768 and be able to mirror to a true 1024x768 output as well!

    Not having either of these options (transform, primary) on the Intel drivers is infuriating every time I hook up an external monitor for presentations. Either I loose the panel on the local display, or I wind up with windows believing I have a 768 height display and forcing me to [alt] move them to get at the buttons.
