We plan on buying some m90 but i have a question first.
We will be using two monitor per computer.
With feature such as Dual Independent Display, can my integrated video card do the job?
If yes, what is the video output? What cables or splitter would i need to plug in multiple displays?
Thx in advance

If the desktop have dual display output ports i.e. DVI and VGA, then it is possible to drive the two independent display.
You haven't say which type of M90 you have, i.e. tower or small form factor.
The integrated graphics card is sufficient to drive the dual display, if you don't play games or do CAD/CAE, etc.

I have quite a lot of M90p's and I've been using the on-board VGA and DisplayPort with 2 separate monitors, one monitor using VGA and the other using DisplayPort, and they seem to be running very smoothly in independent mode. As long as you can utilize the DisplayPort you shouldn't need to buy an additional video card from what I've seen.

Also, you can order the displayport to dvi dongle when you buy the desktop from Lenovo, or purchase it separately from online stores like newegg.com if you can't get it from Lenovo.

Thanks for the info!
Do you mean that you can use two additional monitors on top of the screen that comes with the M90, and that all three screens can contain its own display data independently so that you can have one screen on Word, the second screen on Excel, and the third screen on Powerpoint?
Also, I am considering the M90z. Do you know if the M90z is the same in terms of additional monitor support?
Thanks a lot for your help!
