    I might buy some of these:

    and one of these:

    I have this macbook:

    2.5GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
    Turbo Boost up to 3.7GHz
    16GB 1600MHz memory
    512GB PCIe-based flash storage 1
    Intel Iris Pro Graphics
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2GB GDDR5 memory

    Does anyone know if it can handle several of these 4k monitors at once, or perhaps even just 1 in addition to the built in retina screen on the macbook?

    No - if you want multiple 4k displays with Apple's current offerings you need to buy a Mac Pro.

    If I recall, I think you can run the internal + 1 4k (thunderbolt/displayport) + 1 1080p (hdmi).

    Yup, that is what your 15" rMBP can support.

    If you are using 1 4k, does the other thunderbolt port still work for monitors? Curious. I know the hmdi will work for sure.
