    Hey Guys, I was wondering if any of you know if there is a way that I can dual monitor with the Apple 24in LED cinema display and a 21 inch Dell monitor (VGA or DVI connections). I have the 2012 15 inch MacBook pro (non retina) and the problem I am running into is the cinema display takes up the thunderbolt port and there is no other place to plug in the Dell monitor. I haven't been able to find a USB video card that works with OS X 10.8 and I don't really want to spend $300 on the Belkin thunderbolt dock. Any suggestions as to how I can connect both the Cinema Display (display port connector) and the Dell (VGA or DVI connector)? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    You need a USB video card or a matrox extender. Not the best solution, but it is the only solution available.
