    I have a 24" LG monitor with two different ports (HDMI and vga or something). I currently use it with my PC. But am wanting to use it with my rMBP on occasion. I tried plugging my rMBP with the PC still plugged in (via HDMI) but it wouldn't work. Only with the PC pulled out of the other port. Is there anyway they can both be plugged in together?

    No, and I'd love to see a 24 inch laptop ;)

    I thought I was the only one drunk on this forum... ;)

    Oops..LOL. You knew what I meant ;)

    So not possible to have both devices plugged in at same time to be able to switch between them? Just to be clear they don't have to be on at the same time. Just so I don't have to unplug one to use the other.

    Most monitors have a on screen menu to pick between the port to use. Try that.
