    I'm about to get a 15" MacBook Pro laptop (without GeForce video card) and want to know the least expensive way way to maxumize size and number of the external screens I can run with this.

    Simply stated, "Max number of pixels possible for the least about of money" on the external displays linked to this laptop.

    Currently I have a Samsung S27A850D - 27 inch 2560x1440 monitor that I link with my MacBookAir with a dual USB - miniDisplay Port adapter. What adapter can I use for the MacBook Pro. Can an HDMI adapter get the Samsung running at it's max resolution?


    Longer-term what I people recommendations about getting the max screen real estate? Can you daisy chain a bunch or 1080p monitors (many cheap monitors) , or fewer more expensice 4K monitors?
