Yoga 14 (Type 20FY) Laptop (ThinkPad) - How Many Monitors?

2016-09-03, 0:42 AM

I just purchased this laptop, I like it alot.  


Using the HDMI port and the mini-display port, can I have 3 displays?   The internal touch screen, and then also the moniitor on the HDMI port AND a different monitor on the mini-display port.   That would be 3 displays.


I'm just getting into Microsoft Flight Simulator and it will support 3 videos and I want to have all 3 running to get the most from the application.


I want to be sure that it isn't either/or on the HDMI and Mini-Display Port, but that I can use both/and.


Thanks in advance.

I can not know for sure. I have an older Thinkpad Yoga 14 and I only have one HDMI output port. So I can only get two monitors.


Why do you try getting two TVs (or monitors) together and give it a try if it works. Maybe before buying all the stuff you can get into an office and test it with some monitors afterhours :)


If it does not support 3 monitors the other alternative is to buy of of those USB Video adapters that has DisplayLink technology on it to give you some extra monitor.


These are just my thoughts.
