    Hey. I've been thinking about getting a mac for presentations. This seems to be the one to get. I need some help though. There would be a total of 4 screen attached to the Mac Mini. 2 monitors would be 150+ feet from the mac mini and will mirror each other. there will be another monitor a little bit closer probably be 20 feet displaying an extended screen. A monitor will also be displayed next to the mac mini displaying another extended screen.

    is this even possible and what are all the adapters i need for the screens?

    You need to talk to a video export on running the 150 foot mirrored screens and getting a good signal. Theoretically a DVI splitter and an active repeater should give good results.

    As for 3 separate video outputs - the easiest would be a USB video card thing. They aren't great for video, but work. Otherwise you can use a DualHead2Go to split the signal, if you are not running large monitors.


    Any chance of using a remote mini for the 150 feet away setup? You can use screen sharing or such to monitor it from the local mini.
