So I have a Mac Mini Mid-2011 with a 2.7GHz Intel Core i7 CPU, an AMD Radeon HD 6630M 256MB graphics card, and user upgraded 16GB of RAM. I would really like to have 3 27-inch apple displays, as I use photoshop all the time, and think that this would be very useful. here is my theory: I can buy two thunderbolt displays, hook the first thunderbolt display up to the built in thunderbolt port on the mac mini, and hook the second thunderbolt display up to the thunderbolt port on the first thunderbolt display. so thats two. for the third apple display, I would get a Cinema (non-thunderbolt) apple 27 inch display. i am given to believe that it has an output of DVI. if i am not mistaken, a DVI to HDMI adapter ships in the box with a mac mini, and i think i still have it. so would i be able to hook that third cinema display up to that adapter, and plug it into the HDMI port built into the mac mini; thus successfully having a 3 apple 27 inch display setup running off of one Mac? Thanks in advance. -Alex Noyle
