I have a 13" macbook and want to know how many monitors I can run. I am a PhD student, works on Word doing papers mostly. got a 27" Samsung, got 2 pages up, but once I get up to 80% view the screen reverts to one page. So I either get one larger monitor or, if possible get numerous monitors.Has anyone run multiple monitors off a macbook?

What specific Macbook do you have? The rMBP can support up to 2 external monitors, the regular MBP only one..

If this a new MacBook or at least in the last 2 years most that I know buy the ATV3 and mirror on their flat screen tv which is larger than current monitors just a thought.

rMBP = Retina Macbook Pro. Click on the Apple logo on the top left and choose About this Mac and tell us what it says..
