Very strange that the manual doesn't exist for it (at least, I couldn't find it)...just a datasheet, which says:

Integrated Intel® HD Graphics
HDMI: Yes
VGA: Yes

With both HDMI and VGA ports, it's possible that they may be used at the same time, but not guaranteed. It depends on the capabilities of the integrated graphics, and with no model number or any specs on it, it's impossible to determine with certainty...unless you can find a customer who confirms that it can (or can't) be done. Regards, Joe

True expecting an answer from someone who owns a this particular consumer system here on this site is very unlikely, I do have an Acer laptop that works fine with an external monitor on the HDMI and one on VGA so I would EXPECT this to work.

Lee,
Yes, I would expect it to work, too, but I wouldn't guarantee it. That's why I wrote an article here at EE on that very topic, but for a specific machine:

VBdotnet2005,
You're welcome. Happy to help! Regards, Joe

Just a side-note: I have never seen a machine with 2 external connectors that did not support dual-monitor (with exntended view= different contents, not cloned) in my whole life.
What I have seen indeed are devices that had 2 external connectors but did not support triple-view (2 external + the laptop display). But dual was possible with anything.
