Dell’s E6430 supports triple display output when docked! (including LCD)
Dell’s E6430 supports triple monitors! This came as quite a shock to me when I was setting up my new laptop. 🙂
My current setup is as follows. The laptop is docked and uses:
- One displaylink to dual-link DVI adapter (driving a 30″ display at 2560×1600)
- One DVI cable (driving a 20″ Dell display at 1600×1200)
- Internal LCD (14″ 1600×900)
I can definitely verify that it is possible to use two external displays simultaneously with the internal LCD.
This beats the setup on my old Lenovo X220 as it could only drive dual displays and could not use the internal display when doing so.
Performance is also surprisingly good on the E6430 considering the rather meager integrated graphics (HD4000) and the modest internal graphics (NVS 5200M). No lag/delays while dragging windows between displays and even graphically intense apps (like Photoshop) work well. 🙂
Current rating: 4.5/5 stars to Dell for a very capable triple-display laptop 🙂
Good job Dell!
