Hello everyone,

I am a brand spanking new MAC user and I am quite happy thus far. I do have a question towards display connectivity. Will I be able to connect my 27inch Dell monitor (DVI) along with my 42icnh Plasma (DVI) television to my Macbook pro, what adapter might I need?

Thank you for your assistance,

QUOTE Thanks

Both of them should work fine with your computer.
However, you will only be able to connect one at a time.....
You will not be able to run both of them at the same time as the MBP only has one display port..
you will need this adapter:
