    I've used USB monitors, they don't perform the same as a DP or DVI port... but that is my opinion and experience... take it for whatever is worth...

    also, I didn't say Lenovo... I said thinkpads, which are business class and not the consumer side of the business... while TP are owned by Lenovo, I have no experience with the Lenovo consumer laptops... I prefer business class...

    given it is unclear what reviews you were referring to, I cant comment on them...

    good luck with making a decision and researching the setup you desire...
  7. 1.which one did you use ? usb2? usb3 is much better both of them are on newer laptops and new dell ultrasharp 2. go to Lenovo Canada and read some reviews on thinkpad T and W series
  8. With USB video adapters you can do almost anything. I wouldn't recommend it but it can be done.

    Says you have a Mini DisplayPort and a Micro-HDMI. Just need to check with Asus to see if the BIOS will allow it to display out of both video outputs at the same time. Quite often it's one or the other. Call Asus and ask.
  9. It looks like not an easy task, what I am thinking now it might be better idea to connect to just one monitor let's say dell ultra sharp 27 instead of 2 24 . Another thing to consider 27 comes whith the same resolution as laptop 2560*1440 compared to 24 1920*1200, I am not sure if it's better or not
  10. I just somewhat asked the same question. I'm still skeptical of widescreen monitors.


    If you own the monitors I'd bet you could walk into a Best Buy with them and try to plug them into that laptop - if not ask a sales guy and he/she would probably get the Geek Squad guys to test it out for you.
