Default ATI Mobility Radeon X1800

Does the Mobility X1800 allow for dual external monitors with a laptop? The description from the website is:

Integrated dual-link DVI transmitter (DVI 1.0 compliant and HDCP ready)

Does that mean there are 2 DVI ports?

Thanks.

You can use that VGA splitter thing, but I doubt it works good at all.

What kind of laptop is it? Ive seen newer Dell XPS laptops w/ a VGA port and a DVI port in the back.

Past experience makes me partial to Hypersonic, but it's the card that matters, not the manufacturer. I'm just eager to get a laptop that has two DVI outputs so that I can have two external monitors.
