Will the new Mac Mini (mid-level, quad-core) support the following two
monitors simultaneously: one an Apple Cinema Display 30", 2560x1600
resolution, connected to both the Thunderbolt port and one USB port via the
Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adaptor (this thing:
and the other monitor a Samsung with 1600 x 1200 resolution connected to
the Mini Mac by the hdmi port, using the hdmi-to-dvi adaptor Apple gives you
with the Mac Mini?
I have read in some places that hdmi cannot output better than 1920 x 1080,
but 1600 x 1200 is actually fewer pixels and I have read differing accounts
of whether it will work.
For the Apple Cinema Display, currently on my MacBook Pro 2009 I run it
using the adaptor I mentioned above, and it needs to connect to one USB port
as well as to the miniDisplay Port. I am guessing that the Thunderbolt port
will serve instead of the miniDisplay Port and I will still need to connect
to one USB port on the Mini, in addition to the Thunderbolt port.
