Extternal monitor for Yoga 900 UHD

2018-08-09, 13:49 PM



I am thinking of getting an external monitor for my Lenovo Yoga 900 UHD and was wondering about the resolution of the external monitor. Do I have to get a UHD monitor? Or can I run a normal HD monitor from my laptop? Without that is, having to adjust the resoltion every time a plug the monitor in


And, does anyone have any tips as to what UHD monitor would work with a 3200x1800 res

You can use about any display that'll connect to it. Part of HDMI handshaking includeds information about maximum resolution. In most cases, the resolution change will happen automatically. The biggest issue I face with my 910 is that some dialog boxes and desktop icons don't "get the message" when I disconnect the external monitor.  Minor thing.  Right now, I have mine connected to a 7-year-old Vizio 1080p television. Works great.
