    I have the 2013 13" MacBook Air and 2 older 30" cinema displays. The ports on the cinema displays are DVI and the ports on the MacBOok air is one thunderbolt and two USB.

    How do I connect 2 cinema display monitors to the macbook air?

    I've tried the Belkin hub and there aren't enough thunderbolt ports (I'd need 3 :: 2 for the monitors and 1 to run the cable to my computer.)
    I also want to maximize my resolution (so I currently use the dual link adapters.)

    Thank you for your help!

    I don't think there is a practical way to use two 30" ACDs on the 2013 MacBook Air. The HD5000 graphics will support one external display ( You could use a USB driver for the 2nd, but most of those won't support full resolution with that monitor.

    A current Retina MacBook Pro could do it; ther have two Thunderbolt ports and Iris graphics that will support two high-res externals (
