    Funny, as "3 monitors, 1 Mac" is the title of my upcoming indecent movie.

    In answer to your question, you can get hook 3 monitors up by running one in HDMI, and the other 2 through the Thunderbolt ports. I believe the Apple Cinema Displays used DVI, so if you get two DVI to MiniDisplay converters, that'll be two displays.

    For the remaining one, you can get a DVI>HDMI converter, and that'll be three.

    Of course if they're using something other than DVI, get the other appropriate converters. :)

    I'm assuming you have the latest Mac Mini. If you don't, please advise which model it is and I can suggest something else.
