The recent launch of the new bigger, better 16-inch MacBook Pro brought with it a collection of features that make it look like the ideal choice for designers and creatives. What makes it even better is the fact that the slim and shiny MacBook Pro also supports up to two external 6K monitors simultaneously.

More screens provide the ideal opportunity to have more than one program open at a time, and in clear view. This means no time-consuming window swapping to get access to the desired workspace. See our best monitors post to find the right one for you. Or for more creative tech bargains, see our MacBook Black Friday deals or Apple Black Friday deals.

So how can the external displays be used? An official Apple support document for the new 16-inch MacBook Pro reveals that the laptop can be used in a number of external display configurations including several 6K and 5K options. You can link up two 6K displays with resolutions of 6016 x 3384 at 60Hz. Or, there is the option to link up two 5K displays with resolutions of 5120 x 2880 at 60Hz.
