    Help with converting my mac to screens!
    Hi Guys,

    I have added an image below to show you what i mean.

    I only have a 13inch macbook pro and finding it very difficult to see the screen and work on it! I have 2 19inch screens which i would love to use if i could get my mac through them.

    Could anyone tell me if its possible or what i would need to buy to make this work.

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    There's just not enough information here. Can you tell us what kind of display connector the screens use? And if you can't identify it, can you at least take a pic?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    You just need a MiniDisplayPort to VGA adapter. Without the Matrox setup cradom mentioned, you can only use one of the monitors.

    I can't believe those screens are 19". I guess working in 16:10 all the time has spoiled me, those screens look tiny.
