    On the apple site is says that Mac Minis can be used with 2 displays. I have 2 24" Apple Displays but I can't figure out how to plug both of them in.

    Help!

    One directly via Mini Display Port. The other one with a Mini DP > HDMI converter.

    If you could guide me towards the mini dp > hdmi converter, I would really appreciate it. I don't think they exist. You need a mini dp female to hdmi male. I can find ones that go the other way around....

    I was going to ask this question? I thought the adaptor was included but it's hdmi to dvi - can you go from male dvi to female mini display port ? I think apple wants you to buy a mac pro to run 2 screens!

    You can, but it requires an active adapter that costs $150.
