    You can only hook up one display on MacBook Airs. Alternatively, you can get third party USB graphics card that will support a second display, but you will run into issues. MacBook Pros (13 and 15) support 2 or more displays.

  • I am able to connect my macbook 12 inch to 2 external monitors, one with HDMI port and the other using wifi on an Apple TV. I run into small kinks in my system like the wifi based monitor has a small, sometimes unnoticeable lag, where as the monitor using HDMI runs flawlessly.

    I run both external monitors as separate displays.

  • I have 2 monitors connected to my MacBook Air, therefore I am working off of 3 monitors. I am able to use DisplayLink for the 2nd monitor hookup. DisplayLink has a new install for OS systems that allows the additional monitor so that the monitor operates independently and not as a mirror image. I prefer working with 2 large monitors & the MacBook Screen.
