HDMI Only Laptop -- Dual Monitor Solution Requested

HP ENVY Notebook PC
INTEL(R) HD Graphics 4600

No PC-CARD/PCMCIA slot.
Single HDMI output only.

Windows 8.1

The thing has four USB 3.0 ports -- one of them even charges.

I have one monitor connected to the single HDMI out port. How would I connect a second monitor such that it would work as standard Windows Dual Monitor.

I know I can split the HDMI out, but that would make both monitors show the identical images. I want to be able to use the second monitor showing different stuff.

I understand I need another graphics adapter. My only choice is a USB graphics adapter.

There are plenty of these things available, but I'd like some recommendations from folks here who have used them.

Thanks
