    Hello,

    I'm planning on buying three of these monitors:

    along with this monitor stand:

    http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sn...ote_bnrank=0&baynote_irrank=24&~ck=dellSearch

    and hook these monitors up to a Macbook Pro, but I'm not sure how I could connect these three monitors to the Macbook.

    Is there a simple solution? Or do i have to invest in something like:

    http://accessories.euro.dell.com/sn...ote_bnrank=0&baynote_irrank=43&~ck=dellSearch

    in order to achieve it?

    (Note: if there's a better way of achieving this setup please let me know :D)

    Thanks again.

    I don't think there is any way to get more than the built in display + 1 external on a MBP. If you really need 3 monitors, you have to get a Mac Pro with a few extra video cards.

    You could get a usb to vga dongle and download the software to make it work... but it kinda sucks... Don't do it with a laptop.
