    hi guys, hope you are all well.

    I'm running a Mid 2013 macbook air and i want to get a dual display from my laptop.
    Can someone please point me to the right direction?

    I do have a external monitor connected at the moment but i want 2 monitors connection.
    I've looked at port replicators and they are not compatible with the mac os?

    Please help. Affordability is important.

    Some Users have used the USB 3.0 --> DVI/HDMI/VGA adapters with success. The adapters are not cheap.

    Consider a Thunderbolt 2 dock, that splits out HDMI and multiple TB ports.

    I would personally lean towards models that other Air Users have reported success with, as I recall reading some accounts where certain adapters did not play nice with Macs, even though they were supposedly Mac compatible. If not, I would make sure the product I buy has a good return policy in the event it does not work well/at all. YMMV.
