TIL: new M2 MacBooks officially support only single external screen. Not even the Pro class supports dual. It supports single 6K monitor, but I've failed to find any userfriendly ways to get good tiling which would be equivalent to multi-monitor. The only native tilling is left/right split. TB3 can handle 3x2K or 2x4K, but Apple said "fuck you and your multi-monitor setup".
I ain't mad tho. The guy upgrading to M2 sold me his dual monitors for a really good price.

    @kamen The level of ridiculousness does not stop to amaze me and I had to share it. Colleague owning Air thought it's a limitation for Air only, in order to push people to buy Pro and was also baffled when he found out Pro's have it the same.

    @qwwerty There is no need to use a rumor website as source bc Apple clearly states this fact (one external display for M2) in the tech specs of each model. BTW 14“ & 16“ MBP with M1 Max or M1 Pro support two external displays:
    „Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display at 1 billion colors and:

    Up to two external displays with up to 6K resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors (M1 Pro) or Up to three external displays with up to 6K resolution and one external display with up to 4K resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors (M1 Max)“

    a) I ain't living in the Apple world. No idea where on the rumor level scale is appleinsider web.

    b) The article has links for the officials specs too.

    If you want more than two monitors what you actually want is a desktop.

    Also, since Apple's products don't tend to support hotdesking very well, you want your own workstation.

    There are no alternative use cases, only alternative products. Thanks to Apple's groundbreaking research, they managed to bring the concept of unsupported use cases to universal computing devices, and thanks to their tireless design work this concept is now so omnipresent that if you haven't personally seen a product used in a certain way you're better off assuming it won't work.
