    I'm looking to run two external monitors. I have a late 2012 rMBP 13 ". I already have a thunderbolt 27" inch display - that's very straigtforward. I would like to purchase a second external monitor. I do not want to purchase a second TB display - I want to keep my connectivity options open.

    It's a deal breaker for me if I can't run 2560x on the Dell - in order to get that resolution, I understand I need to buy this -> Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter?

    SORRY for the double post - couldn't figure out how to adjust the title

    As the ATD has two TB ports, you can use one to connect that MDP to DVI adapter or another MDP to DP cable, if that unknown 27" display supports that.

    Thank you on both counts my man.

    Yeah I'm gonna pick up a DELL U2713H.

    Thanks again, much appreciated.

    When you are up and running with it could you report back with a review in the this thread or send me a private message? I've been holding out for Apple's new Thunderbolt Display but I am not averse to getting the Dell U2713H. Thanks

    U2713H has display port, so you just need a minidisplay port to display port cable I believe.
