I have a late 2011 Macbook Pro that I currently have connected to a 24" Dell monitor via the Mini-DVI/Thunderbolt port, and two other Dell 24's via Diamond USB adapters. I work in software development and always have a lot of windows open. I would like to switch to two 30" monitors instead and am looking at Apple 30" Cinema displays but I am not sure how to connect two of them to my Macbook. Can I?


My MBP has a Thunderbolt port, Firewire and two USB ports...


The USB adapters I have work great but only go up to 2048 x 1152 resolution so those won't work, unless there's a newer version with support for 2560 x 1600.


Is there any way to run two of these off of a MBP?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)
