I'm thinking of buying a new iMac but need to have a total of three (3) monitors running off of it.

I know I can connect at least one additional monitor to the iMac but is it possible to connect 2 additional monitors giving me a total of 3 monitors?

Thanks,

Joe

Nope. Only the Mac Pro, among current Macs, supports more than two monitors (counting built-in monitors.)

It looks like I may have answered my own question.

I found a company that offers a product for adding multiple monitors to an iMac. Info can be found at...

I have not yet tried this prodcut myself but from what I've read in other forums, it seems to work.

I'll probably try it and post my results here.

Thanks,

Joe
