    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if I can hook up a second monitor to the thunderbolt port on the back of the new 27in display. If I hook up the new 13in Air to the 27" display, and hook up my U2410 (using a display port to mini displayport cable), will both displays work?

    Right now, I use a USB to DVI adapter to hook up two dell monitors to my macbook pro, but the second external display is extremely laggy, and I'd love to get a 27in Apple display, and be able to use my larger dell as well.

    I'm thinking something like:

    Macbook Air <--> 27in Apple Display <--> Dell U2410

    Is that feasible?

    Thanks!

    Only the 15" and 17" can use two external displays via the TB port.

    Damn! I was afraid of that being the case :(

    Now then, what if I have the 15in MacBook Pro?

    Then you can do that.
