I currently have a MacBook Air 13" 2011.

I want to connect two external Displays. Does it work? I think it can speak to two Displays. When the internal Display is closed, it should be possible to connect another display to have two one!

I want to buy a Dock where i can close the display and have two external ones.

Does anyone know if this solution works?

There's only 1 Thunderbolt port for Air mid 2011 – Tuan Anh Tran Aug 31 '12 at 16:45
This guy did it with a MacBook Pro and an USB to DVI adapter. Maybe this also works with the Air. – Saaru Lindestøkke Jan 19 '13 at 22:11

The specs say that it only supports a single external display.

Check out the Air Display app.
