    Dear all

    I am running Bloomberg and need the picture to extend on to two 24" full HD LCD screens. Including the integrated screen of my current laptop, I use three panels at once. Can I do that with the Z30 1 CZ? Will I have to buy a docking station for that?

    At the moment I am using an ultrabook from a different manufacturer but I am not satisfied for reasons that have nothing to do with the display. Currently I use a docking station where one screen connects by DVI and the other by VGA cable.

    With the Z30, can I just use the VGA and the HDMI ports of the laptop to get the same solution?
    Best wishes,
    Peter

    From my knowledge the display out “feature” depends on the graphic card/chip.

    Usually you can use either the VGA or HDMI output.
    VGA (RGB) port provides analogue signal, HDMI provides digital signal and as far as I know you cannot use both at the same time…

    However, you could purchase an "usb hdmi adapter” adapter which would allow you to use two external monitors simultaneously.
