    I'm not sure if I'm missing something but has there been confirmation the MBA 13 can power dual thunderbolt displays?

    I know they say the new thunderbolt supports daisy chaining for macs with enough graphic horsepower but I'm wondering if there is a specific endorsement for the 13 MBA i5 of i7 w/ the new graphics config.

    If the Mac has a dedicated GPU like the iMacs or the Mac minis or 15" and 17" MBPs, then it can drive two displays. But as of now, the MBAs and their integrated graphics processors can't drive two external displays.

    But the i7 version of the 13" offers discreet graphics...

    "AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphics processor with 256MB of GDDR5 video memory"

    You're definitely mistaken. None of the 13" Macs currently have discrete graphics.
