That will probably depend on the particular manufacturer getting it "right".

 

This one (for example) claims Mac and Windows compatibility.  I just tested it on my Yoga 900 and it seems to work fine.

 

http://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters%C2%AE-Adapter-Supporting-Resolution/dp/B00X4S5C7G/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1448824632&sr=8-3&keywords=usb-c+hdmi

 

USB TYPE-C COMPATIBLE with Mac or Windows computers equipped with a USB 3.1 Type C port such as the new 2015 MacBook, Google Chromebook Pixel, Lenovo Yoga 900 13", and ASUS Zen AiO PC

 

Not an endorsement, just an example.

Re: What cable do I need to connect Yoga 900 to an external monitor??

Hi!

 

I bought this adapter to connect my Yoga 900 to an external monitor: http://www.club-3d.com/index.php/products/reader.en/product/club3d-usb-type-c-to-hdmi-14a-3d-active-adapter.html

 

As soon as I connect the adapter to the USB-C-port of the Yoga I get the error message "Power Surge on Hub Port: A USB device has exceeded the power limits". Re-installing the USB-drivers doesn't help. The problem stays and I cannot use the Yoga with an external monitor.

 

Can someone help?

 

Moderator note: broken link fixed.

Hi,

 

The link I posted above still works for me and shows stock.  Is that what you're looking for?

Both of the products we've linked above are available @ Amazon.ca and probably other places as well.
