    I'm considering getting a Lenovo yoga 13 I see the processor is a 3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3537U Processor( 2.00GHz 1600MHz 4MB) http://shop.lenovo.com/GB/en/laptops/ideapad/yoga/yoga-13/?&cid=uk|semd|se|google|lenovoukdirect|z20EDC|s

    When I look up the intel link http://ark.intel.com/products/72054/ it says # of Displays Supported 3

    However there only seems to be one output port. I want to avoid using USB converters or anything like that, I just want to power 2 HDMI monitors.

    Some advise would really help.

    If the laptop chasis/motherboard offers only one HDMI port, then only one device can be connected. It does not matter how many monitors the internal chip supports.

    Is it possible to connect two monitors on a laptop, one through HDMI and the other through DisplayPort?

    For example the Alienware m17x offers 3 connections, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA. Is it possible to connect two independent external monitors, one through the DisplayPort and one through the HDMI port?

    Simple answer is yes so long as your drivers support it. It would certainly be possible if you were using a usb displayport adapter I'm just not sure whatever chipset your running would support different output to 3 connections (assuming you want to extend your desktop not just have it cloned on multiple screens)
