I do software development and would like to run two Dell U2414H's in portrait mode as a single screen. Is this possible with a MBA 2013? Like this:

enter image description here


The MacBook Air will require a Dual-link DVI output using Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter to connect to the two monitors (so the monitors need DVI cables/connectors) and as long as the combined resolution of the displays is no more than 2500 x 1600 then it will work as that is the max resolution of an external display with this Mac.

If the combined Max resolution of these displays is higher than 2500 x 1600 it may well support both but you won't get the maximum resolution out of the displays.

  • that sounds like an ugly and expensive solution ..... ugh... – timpone Sep 18 '15 at 22:41
  • would a modern mac mini be able to achieve this better? – timpone Sep 18 '15 at 23:11
  • if you go to Apple support they have the specifications for all Macs. That is where I got the info for the MacBook Air. – Steve Chambers Sep 19 '15 at 13:05
  • thx - so just so I understand the dual-link dvi is between the two monitors not the between computer and monitor, right? – timpone Sep 20 '15 at 4:12
  • also, do you have any experience with the Matrox DualHeadToGo? – timpone Sep 20 '15 at 4:23
