Lenovo 2 13 (not pro) able to have an external monitor hooked up?

2015-09-14, 2:11 AM

 I have been looking everywhere for this question, but can only find answers for the Yoga 2 Pro, not the version I have. Can someone please answer if I can have an external monitor hooked up to my Yoga 2,13. I would like to be able to use both screens at the same time. Thanks!


Also, I am looking to hook up via HDMI.

yes you will be able to use the booth screen. do not go for a VGA plug due to the low resolution of the second screen. I share my 22" game pc monitor with my yoga 2 13 with an HDMI micro to normal HDMI. I am also using a "3 Port switch & IR 1080p HDMI Switch Hub + iR Remote + USB Power Cord"  so I do not have to plug and unplug the cable everytime that I have to use one of the two, the box switch automatically or with remote control or button to the yoga or PC.
