If possible steer away from analog VGA.
If you have DVI or HDMI supported monitors, you can use the supplied HDMI to DVI Adapter or a straight HDMI cable from the Mini's HDMI port for one monitor.
Then depending on the second monitor HDMI, DVI or VGA you will need one of the following MiniDisplay Port to HDMI, DVI or VGA Adapters connected to the Thunderbolt Port. Optionaly, if you had a monitor that supported Display Port, then you could use a MiniDisplay Port to Display Port cable.
Moshi Mini DP to HDMI Adapter with Audio Support - Apple Store (U.S.)
Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)
Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

Thanks guys. I'm looking for info on the new Mac mini where the mini dvi has been converted to thunderbolt.
I read that 2 displays can be connected
On the port but it seems that VGA and hdmi can't be on thunderbolt
I'm hoping that both hdmi and thunderbolt ports can be used simultaneously.
Guess I just have try it.
Nice YouTube demo. Really helpful.
