    Hi, I have 2 quick question I hope someone is able to answer:

    1) Would I be able to connect 2 4k monitors to them without affecting performance? I wouldn't be doing things too terribly graphic intensive, but UI lag does bother me!

    2) I know the 13" only comes with 1 thunderbolt controller (presumably I connect my monitors to the right side of my laptop), but would running 2 4k monitors affect the performance of my other ports not being used?

    Thanks for any help you guys can offer!

    Not 100% sure, since they aren't out yet and I've seen no actual reviews with 2 4K monitors, but promo pics have shown dual monitors and on Apple's tech page for the new 13":

    Video Support
    Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display at millions of colors and:
    • One display with 5120-by-2880 resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors
    • Up to two displays with 4096-by-2304 resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors
    Thunderbolt 3 digital video output
    • Native DisplayPort output over USB‑C
    • VGA, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 2 output supported using adapters (sold separately)
    So, yes! I would think so.
