follow Apple Cinema and Apple Thunderbolt Display monitors are the easiest to connect, as MacBooks come build-in with ports that are compatible with any Apple monitor. You will need one cable or adapter per monitor.
We recommend purchasing these cables and adapters from the Apple store, but you can also purchase them from a third party location such as Henge Docks , Best Buy or Amazon. You may want to adjust the display configuration—here is a useful page from Apple support that will teach you how to do so. With a few taps of the keyboard or a click of the mouse, your setup will come to life and you can quickly get to work.
