MacBook Pro With Retina
MacBook Pro with Retina supports at least 4 screens

One MacBook Pro with Retina… 3 external screensYesterday someone asked me about multi-monitor support for our work machines. I rattled off the standard statistics for Dells, MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros… then realized I wasn’t sure what the Retina Pro supported. This could not stand, so I had to go test it out! The Retina has 2 Thunderbolt ports plus 1 HDMI port. You can, in fact, plug one monitor into each ALONG with your internal screen… for a total of 4 monitors.
Review: MacBook Pro with Retina
August 7, 2012
When the MacBook Pros with Retina display were first announced, I figured we’d never buy them at work because they were more expensive. As it turns out, if you take a non-Retina MacBook Pro and add 8 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD which makes the system specs identical to the Retina Pro (sans screen), the Retina is actually cheaper. Something to keep in mind if you are trying to decide between Retina and non-Retina. So we ended up getting a few of these new new Retina Pros and I’ve been using one as my primary machine since the day they arrived. Jon like.
