As shown in the photo below, posted by Other World Computing on their blog, the new 15.4 inch retina display Macbook Pro can successfully run with three attached external displays. Two iMacs are serving as thunderbolt displays, while a third monitor is attached via HDMI. According to Other World Computing, there are a total of 15,680,000 on the four screens.
The impressive thing is that the four screen setup actually runs quite smoothly. With my Early 2010 Macbook Pro running with 4GB RAM and a 1920×1200 external HDMI monitor attached, I often experienced a lot of lag when trying to utilize both monitors simultaneously. (I later upgraded to 8GB RAM and that fixed the issue.) According to a member of the Other World Computing Staff,
Moving images and media didn’t create any lag and we were able to play video on all four displays simultaneously.
This is the first Macbook that can natively power four displays at the same time, and do a good job of it too.
