Using two screen that use Mini-Display port.

Hello Alienware community,

I was wondering if it was possible to use dual screens through the mini display port on the Alienware M18x. If so, could you help me choose what to buy?

Hello,

A laptop does not support 2 external monitors. It will only support one external monitor. As it can have only 2 displays.
1. Laptop LCD.
2. External Display.

However if you want to connect 2 external display to your laptop, I would suggest using a  dualhead2go.
It is an adapter which would allow you to connect 2 monitors to the computer.
Please refer to the link mentioned below for setting up 2 monitor to a computer.

This Dualhead2go adapters would support any kind of monitor.
So you may get any kind of monitors which suits your requirements.
Hope you find this information helpful.

Thanks for the reply, I believe i found my answer shortly after you posted.

I found videos of other people using the VGA, Display port, and hdmi to run three screens.
