    Hello guys and girls,

    I'm thinking about switching from iMac/MBP to MBPr as my primary machine at the office. I'm running 2 x 2560x1440px at the moment with the iMac display and a DELL 27" display via DisplayPort/Thunderbolt1.

    I'm considering either

    - 2 x DELL 27" U2715H (+ elgato dock + thunderbolt device to only use one thunderbolt port on my Macbook)

    - 1 x LG/DELL Curved display at 3440x1440

    or

    - 1 LG/DELL Curved display at 3440x1440 via Thunderbolt2 + 1 x DELL 24" (1080p) or even a 27" via HDMI.

    Anyone knows if the last option is possible at all?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sebastian

    Samuelsan, thanks for the feedback.

    Are you sure this is valid for an MBPr13 Late 2013?

    Your quote appears to be from the MBPr apple.com description. The current retina 13" books use an Intel Iris Graphics 6100, the late 2013 is an Iris 5100.

    Apple specs say this:

    Can anyone confirm if connecting 1 x 3440x1440 and a 1080px display works (or even a 27" 2560x1440 DELL?)

    you are right it is

    As far as I can tell it'll only do one 4K display.

    Graphics and Video Support

    I seem to rember another thread where people got it working with a 1080p on HDMI as well but I can't find it and I think there were lag problems.

    Maybe a little OT, but does 3440x1440 count as "4K"?

    No 3440x1440 are around 5 million pixels where as 4k is at about 8 million pixels.

    But I can assure you that one 3440x1440 works on the late 2013 one. Not sure if you can add another 1080p one to this setup :/
