    As a freelancer i usually work at home but sometimes I do some work outside (using my machine)

    I was thinking to buy the new MBP and use it as my main machine, meaning that at home I would plug it into two 22inch monitors almost all the time and away from home i would use the laptop directly.


    Anyone using this set up ? Does the MBP handle this smoothly ? Also should I go with basic specs or customize it ?

    Works for me perfectly. I have it set up with one 24 inch and one vertical 21 inch. Works perfectly with no hiccups.

    Did you have any specific concerns?

    Thanks for the replay, Do you close the lid of your MBP when your using the monitors ? is there any heating issue and does the battery get damaged fast in long term if this is your primary setup.

    I do it in Clamshell mode.
    And no, as far as I see it, there is no damage to the computer whatsoever.

    Haven't tried it yet but alot of people are using DualHead2Go Digital ME to connect two monitors, it will split the mini display which is a better solution then using one for mini display and connecting the other from USB ( the second screen will be laggy )
