    I'm getting a new MacBook Air. But one requirement I have is it needs to support multiple external displays.

    I've already got one large LG display.

    I presume the MacBook Air can connect to this external display, with a MiniDisplay port, or some other connector.

    What I would really like to know is if it can in addition drive an other monitor, which can be the Apple monitor, or maybe an other LG display like above.

    What are the limitations on the number of external monitors I can have? Must they be Apple with the Thunderbolt display, or can I use non-Apple/non-thunderbolt monitors. What is the max number of monitors I can run?

    Would other Macs (MacMini or MacBook Pro) be a better choice for running many external monitors?

    You can use 2 Apple Thunderbolt Displays with the 2012 Air, or 1 ATD connected to another thunderbolt device (pegasus r4/r6, etc) and then you can hook up your LG display.
