Have a ThinkPad T470 and a ThinkPad 90W Pro Dock; is a three-external-monitor setup possible?

2019-12-09, 21:14 PM

Hey everyone. As the headline says, I have a ThinkPad 90W Pro Dock and a ThinkPad T470 laptop with the following specs:

  • i5 CPU
  • 8GB of RAM
  • Windows 10

I'd like to buy three identical monitors - nothing fancy, something between 27" and 32", sub-4k resolution, intended for corporate office use exclusively - and connect them for a cohesive screen experience. Ideally, connect everything via digital connections so there are zero/minimal differences in resolution and image quality on each monitor. Is this possible? First off, can my laptop/dock even run three external monitors? There was some conflicting information online. If it can, am I limited to 1 analog (VGA) and 2 digital (DVI and DisplayPort) outputs as a result of the port options on the dock, or is there some workaround for that? Could I upgrade to the ThinkPad 90W Ultra Dock which has 1 HDMI and 2 DisplayPorts as a possible solution? Would really appreciate anyone's input.

And if anyone has a recommended monitor that would fit my needs, I'd love to hear your suggestion
