Have a look at ATI or NVidia gfx cards, they say if they support 3 or more monitors, and Reason can be 'exploded' across all 3, using CTRL-F5 / CTRL F6 / CTRL F7 to separate the 3 areas. Maximise to each monitor, save as atemplate, tell REason this is your new 'template' file so it always opens up in same way

Any way of doing this with an iMac? I already have a second external display but would add a 3rd if I could...

I have my 17" laptop and 2 19"'monitors running win7.
1 monitor out of the dvi port and a cheapusb display adaptor out of a usb 2.0 port to the other monitor , pretty easy , I think you can find a USB display adaptor for around $50.00
Go to control - display-display settings and choose extend my display across the 3 displays and now my default template opens with the rack on the left , sequencer in the middle and mixer on the right , never looked back!

I've had three monitor set up for a long time. Older machine with two ATI 1300 & 1500 graphic cards. Newer machine with one ATI 5550. Normally have two landscape, one portrait, I keep the mixer on the portrait monitor. I personally don't like the Reason SSL mixer on the portrait monitor as it's too "squat" you can't resize, where as Reaper Imperial Theme is great on the portrait monitor.

With the old configuration two card set, I've used 4 monitors it's cool for auxiliary stuff (explorer, notepad, resource monitor, etc)
