    Hi All,

    Looking at the option for a colleague to hook 2 monitors up to his MacBook Air - he already uses the apple thunderbolt but I'd rather not buy a 2nd due to price and the number of years it hasn't been updated for.

    Any thoughts on the below please in terms of quality and whether it would daisy chain with the thunderbolt successfully ? (My colleague tells me he has 2 thunderbolt ports but from memory it is just one on the air?)


    Thank you.

    I agree with the OP -- I think MBA has just one TB port. But if two, easy. I have 2 monitors connected to my MBP. One mDP to mDP connecting a Dell 2715Q, and one mDP to DVI adaptor, then to a Dell U24. You could probably try and see if an mDP adaptor would connect the Thunderbolt Display to another display using HDMI or DVI.
