Can you run dual monitors with the new macbook or is it not supported?
I can't imagine that Apple designed this MB to drive dual monitors.
It can drive a 4K external display in addition to its own, so I guess two lower resolution displays in clamshell mode should be possible - if you can find the right adaptors.
It can only drive one external display. It's not like the MBA.
I would say no without even looking. Than you are getting away from really what the computer is meant for. I almost waited for one, well at least the first gen.
I can see if someone wanted to use one as a extended or mirrored display once and a while. But if you want to drive two displays i would think that would be MBPR territory or even MBA. Just what i think at least.
I don't think it can because of the port, not because of the power. It only has one port; either HDMI or VGA with the adaptor. As far as I know, you need two display out ports to run two different desktops unless you're mirroring.
On my rMBP I need to use both thunderbolt ports to run my dual DVI monitors
with one port and a 5300
Couldn't you AirPlay to an Apple TV for one display and hook another into the port?
Could you daisy chain two of these http://store.apple.com/us/product/MJ1K2AM/A/usb-c-digital-av-multiport-adapter
which would give you two HDMI ports, or use one of the above and a USB 3 to HDMI adapter?
what about people who have a Cinema or Thunderbolt display, how we connect those Apple displays to the new rMB?
The hydra dock will have 2 video out ports
The Hydradock is vaporware that may never see light of day.
What about a thunderbolt daisy chain...
