MacBook Pro M1 with 2 monitors

Apparently works with Targus DisplayLink hub. Video

Edit: I wonder if it will work with either of the new MBA M1 models. Thinking that the higher end would have a good shot at working.

Huh. so one screen USB C to xxx cable and the other, USB C display adapter + HDMI to xxxx cable.

I used a USB to DVI display adapter on my 2010 27" iMac to run a 1080 screen, seemed to work OK -- suppose this is the same concept.

They seem to have versions that are 4K, so 3 4K screens on a mini?

That would take up both USB C ports and HDMI... wonder if a hub will work.

Yes, should work fine on all M1 Macs. Plenty of such hubs.

I have this USB-C hub with DisplayLink. Works with both Intel MBPs and 2017 MacBook.

So the idea of a M1 mini replacing a 27" iMac + 2 screens is a possibility... if it can run 3.

My thought was always that you could prob run a 3rd via USB, just like my 2010 iMac...

Awesome. Looks like even 6 displays works:

You need a hub that supports Displaylink. Some good links in the following reddit link:
