    So I will be getting a new 13 inch rMBP through my work and I need some assistance with my external monitor setup. While my work is willing to get me the new computer, they are insisting that I continue to use the 2 monitors that I have now. The problem is that they are older analog monitors that use DVI connections to a docking station for my current Windows machine. Is it possible to run 2 Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapters at once on the rMBP?

    Yes, it should work assuming it is a rMBP and the monitors are not too high resolution, which I suspect they are not.

    I have a similar setup running on my desk, but my displays are flat panels, not CRTs, but still DVI, which is Digital, not Analog.

    Mine are both flat panels as well, I guess I shouldn't have said analog, really just meant older monitors with only VGA or DVI capability. One is a Dell P2210 and the other is a Dell E228WFP.

    Ok. Should work fine. I am using 2 of these adapters, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UHLC24O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&th=1

    They work with VGA, HDMI, DVI, but I am sure there other brands that also work fine.
