I have two questions.
First: I have one laptop and two monitors. I would like to extend display on the two monitors.
Laptop: HP ZBOOK15-G3 running Windows 7 Professional (http://store.hp.com/us/en/mdp/business-solutions/zbook-15-mobile-workstation-243552--1?jumpid=cp_r11400_us/en/ips/business_laptops/workstation/buynowZ15G3)
Left side: 1 VGA; 1 USB 3.0 (charging)
Right side: 2 USB Type-C™ (Thunderbolt™ 3, DP 1.2, USB 3.1); 1 HDMI 1.4; 2 USB 3.0;
Monitor 1: NEC MultiSync EA223WM
Interfaces: DVI-D, DisplayPort, USB 2.0 downstream, USB 2.0 upstream, VGA
Monitor 2: Samsung SyncMaster 2443
Interfaces: 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15), 24 pin digital DVI, 4 pin USB Type A
What economic option/s do I have to extend display on the two monitors besides using a docking station? If so, what cables/gadgets do I need?
Second: I would also like to add more USB ports to my laptop (currently only 3) if that's possible, what solutions are there?
FYI, I am not a hardware guy and I am lost with all these "standards". Thanks in advance.
