3 Monitors

I have a Lenovo T530 and currently have a docking station and extension to an external monitor.  I wonder how I can connect another external monitor so that I can have three displays ( two external displays) and one laptop.

Do I need to get anything to support this setup?  - thanks

I recently looked into this exact issue.  It depends on your video card.

If you don't mind a USB solution, any of these will do:

I've been using these for years and have been very happy with them.

BTW....what video does your laptop have?  If it doesn't have the NVidia, then it won't work without an USB solution.

That is correct.  I am running the original Intel HD Graphics that came in my T520 and it does not permit 3 monitors however I have a user with the NVidia and they are able to. That is the reason for my original post that it depends on the video card.
