It appears that the Retina MacBook Pro has shown itself to be the first Mac notebook to exist with the power to work with four displays natively. The Mac Pro tower has an ability to power this many monitors, of course, but in that the Retina MacBook Pro has been proven this week to be able to run three monitors outside of its own this week via HDMI and Thunderbolt, it is a bit of a milestone for the manufacturer at least.
