Monitors on a ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3 (T410)

Hello.

 

I have a T410 laptop with a ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3 (EU).

 

I was wondering how many monitors i could use with this setup?

Will it be possible to use 3 external monitors? (they all use VGA)

 

If i could do that, what adapters should i buy?

 

I want to use this so the laptop is closed, and sitting in the dock, under the table( where the the keyboard/mouse normally is.

To see a picture of where the keyboard normally is press here.

Then ill connect a keyboard/mouse to the dock, and put it over the laptop (on the plate above the laptop)

 

This would be easy to do, right?

 

Is there any software i should download/buy to get this to work?

 

 

Thank you in advance!

 

And i'm not sure if this is the right forum to use, please tell me if i should post it in another forum.
