    Default mac mini with dual monitors..

    hello everybody!

    i plan to sell my tower pc and to buy a mac mini. i really want two monitors because of vsts beeing inside my arrangement view all the time, it's annoying. : )

    my question is if a mac mini can handle two monitors with ableton and various vsts?

    is it even possible to connect to monitors? i mean the newest mac minis got a hdmi and a mini display port, i got an mini diplay to hdmi adapter here at home, so it should work, right? =)

    greets

    Looks like it should work.

    I would consider using one or two of these

    in addition to your regular monitor. The 10 inch touch screen is the one that intrigues me.

    I haven't tried two monitors on mine yet, but I do use screen share with the ipad and iteleport with no problems. It has the hdmi port and the mini display port.
    I'm looking to get a mini display too.
    I've been running traktor, and vdj on it with no problems.
