Q. visitor asked, I'm looking for a docking station for my Lenovo Ideapad. I want to run 2 monitors not including the laptop using hdmi outputs. I only have one hdmi output that came standard with the laptop. What you recommend?

Hi, I see you're looking at laptop docks, how can I help?

They don't seem to make a docking station specifically for the ideapad.
Only the Thinkpad/

This universal dock should work great. Just be very careful about the instructions.

That looks great but is there a cheaper option? All i really need is a usb 3.0 to hdmi? I guess it doesn't even need to be a docking station.
Seems kind of overkill for what I want to do.
But if that's the only option. I'll probably go with that.
Mark N.
This is a cheaper, less overkill option.
