    Hi!

    Does anyone know if it's possible to daisy chain the new LG UltraFine 5K display with 1-2 other monitors, from a single Thunderbolt 3 port on the newest Macbook 13 (with touchbar)?

    The 13 inch can only drive one 5k display. It can drive two 4k displays, however.

    Ahh ok. But do you think it can drive the 5k display along with a 1080p display and a 1440p display?

    I believe the LG UltraFine displays that Apple is promoting only have USB out, not Thunderbolt. If so, you will not be able to link TB3 peripherals through the display. The 4k model ships with a USB Type-C cable and not a TH3 cable like the 5k does. Is the 4k even a TB3 device?
