Can w700ds run 2 external 24" monitors as well as the laptop monitor?

I have 2 24" monitors I'd like to hook up to my w700ds. Currently I am using a DualHead2Go. However, shouldn't there be a way for me to connect the 2 monitors without going through the DualHead2Go? I want to do this because I want each monitor to act independently. Currently it often sees the 2 external monitors as one large monitor.

 

Any help would be appreciate.

 

Thank you

you would need to get a Lenovo usb2dvi adapter to get the extra monitor to act independently.

And that would allow all 3 (including laptop screen) to act independently? Thanks for your quick answer.
