    Is it possible to get 2 external monitors for a 2011 MBA? The lid will be closed, as I was hoping to 'dock' it if you will, is that possible with the 2011 MBA?

    No, only one:
    Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors.

    You could try Thunderbolt AND a USB to HDMI, but it will be low quality 720p, maybe even lower with USB 2.0.

    Any USB - DVI options?
