X380 YOGA - how to connect 3 displays without a dock?

2019-01-14, 10:51 AM

Hi all,

I've read in the technical data sheet that this machine supports up to 3 displays. I know some dockingstations exist (TB3 and USB-C) but these are quite expensive and not sure if I really need all the other interfaces they bring with them ...

So, I wonder if it is possible and how with simple connectors/adapters to connect 3 (or at least 2) external displays to the X380. I'm not using the internal display at all as the device is located in a small shelf.

Here are my thoughts: I would use the HDMI directly to one of my external displays and in addition use adapters via USB-C and TB3, but I don't know how to reasonably mix all of these, e.g. 1 HDMI + 2 USB-C/TB3 (which adapter?) or no HDMI + 3 USB-C/TB3 (which adapter?) or 2 HDMI (via DUAL split?) + 1 USB-C/TB3 (which adapter?) or 3 HDMI ... or ... or ...

Did anyone find any information how this could be configured properly or made some experiences already?
