hi I have just recently bought the X300 and I am using 30inch Dell Ultrasharp monitors at home and in all my offices. I was not aware that the monitors only accept DVI connections and not VGA so now I am having trouble connecting my thinkpad to an external monitor. Before i buy a port replicator or a docking station(is there one that fits the X300 ) Can i connect my notebook through these I have tryed a standard adapter wi no success. I most likely will have to purchase some VGA to DVI scaler for upwards of 300$ for each of my workspaces and home. Will the port replicator or a docking station do the trick? Also of course i will need different resolutions on my 2 monitors so im interested in any response to this threat and drgoebel's question.
