I am buying a 15" laptop and I need to have a desktop replacement. I therefore will buy a monitor, keyboard and mouse as well.
There is no docking station designed specifically for this model, so the only option I have is to buy one of these Stream-Video-Via-USB and Pray-Photoshop-Will-Work things. I prefer to connect two cables to laptop instead of one to get video streamed separately.
My questions are:
- Is it possible to do this?
- The monitor has built-in speakers and a HDMI port. Will the dual screen Windows 7 mode work if I connect it via HDMI rather than D-Sub or DVI port? The laptop has a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce graphics card.
