Laptop with dual Display ports exist?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is there a laptop right now besides the retina macbook that supports 2 display ports. I need a laptop that can run 2 2560x1440 monitors. I dont know if the lenovo docking station can do it. I was thinking of getting a Lenovo W520.

I am looking for same, specific to lenovo.

For Lenovo - using the docking station - You can get two displays - BUT - only on the 2560 x1440 via display port the other adaptor options are less resolution

Disappointing.

Heres the spec:

Support for external analog monitor is through VGA DB-15 connector
Support for digital monitor via DisplayPort (supports single-link DVI-D via cable 45J7915)
Maximum external resolution: 2560x1600 (DisplayPort)@60Hz; 2048x1536 (VGA)@85Hz; 1920x1200@60Hz (single-link DVI-D via cable 45J7915
All displays are measured diagonally.

Similar for ThinkPad W530.

Shouldn't any laptop with a VGA and HDMI port be able to do this?

My $250 netbook has both, you'd think more expensive laptop would also have this.

This an an old post that I had a question with. I will answer it for anyone else looking for an answer.

To get 2 display ports you need to look for a laptop that has a dock or the new Retina Macbooks.

What I ended up getting is the Lenovo T530 with the 4338 mini dock 3 plus. This dock gives you 2 display ports. I am running my 2 Dell U3011's off the laptop and its awesome.

Hope this helps.
