Thinkpad T460 dual monitor setup without docking station


is it possible to get a Dual Monitor setup running without a Docking Station via miniDP and HDMI (Thinkpad Display closed)?


If not, are there different docking stations to buy? Which one would I need?


Or does anyone have other suggestions to get a dual monitor setup running without a docking station and 2 external monitors?

Re: Thinkpad T460 dual monitor setup without docking station

One option would be to daisy chain 2x DisplayPort monitors (I use 2x Dell u4515H's).

From personal experience, if you go this route, make sure you get good quality DP cables (ones that are listed on the official displayport website).  I used some cheapo cables and this caused all sorts of daisy chain-related problems.


I'm not sure if you can drive 1 monitor by DisplayPort and the other by HDMI.

I know you cannot do this using a ThinkPad Pro dock, so I would guess the same is true directly from the laptop (but I could be wrong).
