Apple’s rumored next-gen MacBook Air will allow you to drive up to three displays at once

“Your next MacBook Air should support a total of three displays at once via one Thunderbolt connection, according to a leaked roadmap of Intel’s plans for its Ivy Bridge processors in 2012,” Alex Heath reports for Cult of Mac.

“With Apple’s next-generation laptops primed to sport Intel’s Ivy Bridge silicon, it’s very likely that future MacBook Airs and Pros will be able to support two external displays plus the MacBook’s built-in screen,” Heath reports. “Currently, the Sandy Bridge processor will allow the MacBook Air to power one external display via a Thunderbolt connection. The 13-inch MacBook Pro can handle two external displays, but that’s only when the built-in screen is turned off.”

Heath reports, “Ivy Bridge will introduce the ability to use three screens at once across Apple’s entire MacBook line.”
