I was wondering is it possible to have 2 external 1080P monitors attached to my MBP?

My machine have a Thunderbolt port.

The monitors have HDMI, VGA, and DVI. (No thunderbolt display port sadly.)

Is it possible to connect 2 external monitors to the MBP without using an USB video card? I am okay with using the MBP in clamshell mode. On this stackexchange there are methods that involves Thunderbolt -> 2 DVI/HDMI adapter, would this allow me to have 2 separate desktops?


  • you could use a hdmi splitter but then both monitors would show the same!

Never tried with Thunderbolt splitting, but regularly run with multiple monitors. Using other methods.

How to connect two non-Thunderbolt displays to the Macbook Pro 2011 via Thunderbolt?

From Documentation looks like your Mac only has one Thunderbolt port that also doubles as the display out. Officially it supports 2 Displays per Thunderbolt port

Nothing that I can see in Apple Store but Found something that should work. Note I do not have personal experience with this product.
