Best way to connect multiple monitors to thinkpad 460s

2020-02-09, 19:36 PM

Hello

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad 460S. I would like to connect my two Acer Monitors to the laptop simultaneously to view different pages. I can see there are docking stations and so on, on the market. But I would be grateful for members advice as to which may be the best way to solve my issue.

 

Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Many thanks.

 

Tristan.

It depends.  If both monitors do support DisplayPort,  then you can connect them using a Thinkpad Ultra dock (40A2).

Let's say both monitors support DisplayPort and 'daisy chaining' (aka MST) then you could connect both to the systems DisplayPort with out any docking station.
