MacBook Pro 15″ With Retina Display Can Run 3 External Displays

Posted Jun 20, 2012

Mike H of Other World Computing wrote a blog post that shows his awesome workspace setup that he put together after buying a 15″ MacBook Pro with the built-in Retina Display. He is running four displays at their native resolution. When he moved images and media, there was not any lag. In case you were looking for a reason why you should buy the MacBook Pro, this is a pretty good reason why. This is how he set it up:

  1. Retina on laptop @ ?best for Retina?
  2. iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt
  3. iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt/DisplayPort
  4. LG monitor @ 1920 x 1200 via HDMI
