I didn't have a chance to stress test or run benchmarks. I hope to do that soon.

the 17inch built-in,
a 27 in Thunderbolt Display
a 27 in DisplayPort non-Thunderbolt Display
To pull this off, I needed to daisy chain thru a intermediate thunderbolt device other than the Apple Thunderbolt display. Not sure why. I happened to have a Pegasus R4 so it wasn't a problem.
Bottomline is that it works and works well even w/ last year's tech. I wonder if with two thunderbolt ports on this new macbook one could run 6 total displays:
4 DisplayPort displays off of the Thunderbolt jacks, the HDMI TV, and the built-in.

Amazing! I can't wait to see some benchmarks of this running. My particular needs wouldn't be quite this high, but it's still pretty amazing to have that much real estate up and running from a laptop.
