    Hey Guys,

    I am finally making the movie from the pc to the Mac. After debating on the imac or the macbook pro, I am looking to get either the retina Mac book pro or just the MacBook pro this week. This will be for my office. I currently use two 24 inch led monitors.

    Is there a way for me to still use these with the MacBook pro? Or would it not be as necessary with the different operating system? I used one screen for my outlook and the other for docs, browsers etc. however many times I would have excel and word opened on both screens to work on multiple projects.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    It would be easier with the Retina MBP, as it has two Mini-Displayport video outputs as well as an HDMI output.

    The standard Macbook Pro only has one Mini-Displayport video output so it can only drive one external display, unless you buy Apple's Thunderbolt Display which supports daisy chaining.
