What devices does the new USB Type-C port on the Yoga 900 support?
The new USB Type-C port supports:
- USB 3.0
- native display port 1.2 video output
- VGA/HDMI output using a Type-C VGA/HDMI adapter (which is a separate purchase)
(Ref: page 8 of https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/yoga_900-13isk_ug_en_201509.pdf)
Adding to the above: Gigabit Ethernet via any of several 3rd party USB-C-to-USB3 adapters that also feature an RJ45 jack.
how can we improve it?

I've the USB 3.0 adaptor but the external monitor doesn't seem to work.
Any help ?
The Minix multiport adaptor is accepted and does sport a 1Gbit ethernet as well as HDMI (and micro+standard SD, two USB3).
It runs very hot though, so I guess it is not very energie efficient. WOuld not use that if you are on the road.
Has anyone successfully used a USB-c to hdmi adapter? I bought one from cablematters but cannot get it to work.
I small comment on the minix.
It runs hot only when connected to Ethernet. So for a dual card reader, 2*USB, and HDMI + second usb-c connecter it works just great.
On a different note. Is the USB-C recepticle on the Yoga 900s unstable? With the Minix connected all that is required is touching the connector and the connection momentarily lost and comes back again. This is quite annoying as my mouse and keyboard are connected here and it takes Windows a couple of seconds to find them back again.
Is this inherent to USB-C or is it the implementation of Lenovo?
