What is the best way to set up multiple monitors (>1 extra) to a macbook pro (early 2011)?

Appleologist :

Hi, and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am excited to get started with you.

So I can better assist you, I will need additional information. Do you want your external monitor to act as an extension? Or would you like it to mirror what is on your macbook pro?


An extension - I like to have lots of word and pdf documents up sise by side for editing of manuscripts

Appleologist :

Ok, are you just connecting one monitor or multiple monitors


I already use a vag cable and apple connector to link up a single 24" monitor but I would like 1 or 2 more

Appleologist :

Are your other monitors going to be VGA too or mini display?

Appleologist :

If you haven't gotten your monitor yet, to add the 2nd monitor, you can use your Thunderbolt to VGA
