I think this is easily possible, but I wanted to confirm before pulling the trigger on another monitor. I currently am using my W530 with a Dell U2713H external monitor (2560x1440) and would like to add another one.
Would the W530 be able to handle Mini DP to DP into the Dell U2713H and then DP out to DP in of a second Dell U2713H. I think this is a common daisychaining method, but wanted to confirm. Please share your setup if it is at all informative.
Thanks for the help!

Works for me with the equipment listed in my signature. I was using 2 x U2715 (2560x1440). Have since replaced one of the U2715H monitors with a UP3017 (2560x1600). Daisy chain works fine. Both monitors usually spring to life within a few seconds of attaching the mDP cable to the W530, but sometimes one or the other monitors requires a power cycle to be recognized. Just be patient (wait a few seconds) when you 1st plug in the mDP cable (i.e. don't expect the monitors to fire up instantly).
BTW, it appears that Dell no longer sells the U2713H.
