If you connect the external monitors, one to HDMI and the other to VGA then you should be able to run two external monitors. If you go into the power settings and click "choose what to do when the lid is closed" you can make it where you can close the computer and turn off the internal monitor and the computer will continue to work. This is one way of accomplishing this feat. I am going to try and grab an E530 and do a couple of runs on how to get the internal monitor off without closing the ThinkPad. I will post back after a little testing.
Hope this helps,
