    Hello!

    I would like to know if the current Macbook Pro 15" can handle two external monitors with 1440p (display port) and 1080p (hdmi) resolutions? Can it also handle these two external monitors and its build-in monitor at the same time?

    Im particularly interested in the cheaper models with Intel Iris gpu.

    Yes, no problem at all. I have the $1999 2015 rMBP

    Thanks for the reply!

    Can you confirm it also for two external monitors and build-in monitor?

    It handles 2 at 1080p and the built in display with no hiccups at all, I use that configuration often. I've pushed the computer fairly hard in non-graphics intensive programs, and it always performs. The one at 1440p really shouldn't make much of a difference unless you are planning to really push the graphics while using all three displays.

    I've heard some people that say the scaling setting on the rMBP will cause issues if it isn't at default, but I've never experienced this myself.

    15 inchers have been able to do 2 x 1440p plus internal for more than five years.

    You'll have no problems.
