Hi, Soon I'm going to buy the current Mac Mini. I was wondering if I could connect two screens up using a HDMI Splitter. (Mac>Hdmi>Splitter>Two hdmi cables) Will there be any lag from the splitter? Or is this completely inpossible?

I dont think that will work, and if it did, it would only be a mirrored display. What you can do is use the Thunderbolt port for an extra display.

Thanks. It's a little while away yet but when it happens I'll post the outcome on the thread.

With HDMI it may or may not work to use a splitter. It is a very finicky interface because of the high bandwidth.
