Thunderbolt-capable Macs, with discrete AMD Radeon graphics can support up to TWO connected Apple Thunderbolt Displays.
- MacBook Pro (15-inch and 17-inch, Early 2011) and later
- iMac (Mid 2011)2
- Mac mini (Mid 2011), 2.5 GHz3
All others can only support one external directly, usually based on a Mini DisplayPort with an adapter.
You could use two of these, but reports are they are "laggy":Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers

The Thunderbolt interface works like the older Firewire scheme: peer to peer. So a TB peripheral, in this case the displays, has two TB ports: one you use to connect to the Mac and get the video signal from, the other to connect the second display and forward the info to. The things are clever enough to figure out the rest.
However, I am told that even the top of the line MBPs do not have enough video resources to drive all three displays (2 external + the Mac's screen). So you get output on the two displays and your Mac's screen goes blank.

The solution for you is MatroxDualHead2Go DP edition. This piece of hardware got an internal graphic card, so the quality is good (3840x1200 (2x1920x1200) )and its not laggy at all.
The only downside is the price.
You can view the product at this website: http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/displayport/
I hope this will solve your problem, feel free to ask if you have futher questions.

Dit is ook niet de ideale oplossing ik ben namelijk opzoek naar:
macbook pro met links en rechts een external monitor.
Bij deze splitter kan dit niet zo worden ingedeeld omdat de macbook waarschijnlijk maar 1 extern scherm ziet.

Luckily, google translate can help:
This is not an ideal solution because I am looking for:

With this splitter, this can not be assigned because the macbook probably only 1 external screen.Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.8), & Server, PPC, & AppleTalk Printers
