    That shall do it, but as monitors vary in size, 10" to 30", and therefore the individual resolution of each, your MacBook might/will not be able to drive two extra 30" displays.

    my understanding is they can, but i don't believe they can behave as two separate displays and would just be mirroring, although i could be wrong. You can hook up monitor and have one display and the laptop screen equals the other.

    MacBooks are able to extend the display, not just mirror it, as the iBooks were only able to do without a little hack called Screen Spanning Doctor.


    The maximum resolution supported on an external display is 1920x1200.
