Laptop display to 2x LCD monitors - What connection?

Hi,

I have an ASUS laptop (http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/N53SV/specifications/) and I'm looking to purchase 2x LCD monitors (22", 1920 X 1080).

The laptop has;
1x VGA
1x HDMI

The monitors I am looking at consist of;
1x VGA
1x DVI
1x Display Port

I'd like to maintain a digital connection however I cannot find anything online which supports HDMI split. Is my only option here to use VGA to Dual VGA?

Thanks

You can use HDMI to DP for one of them.

In theory, you can also use a HDMI splitter...

and then use HDMI to DP to convert that signal.  However, i've never personally tried it so i'm not sure if it'll work.

With a HDMI splitter splitting the video, I'm reading online that only the same image will be outputted to both monitors. This is not what I am after. I am looking for the ability to extend the desktop.

don't believe everything you read, after hooking up the two monitors you'll have to go into display properties and set it extend or display the same image, its not automatic

its the same thing with VGA, you'd have to choose between extend or mirror
