Hi all.

Is there anyone who knows of a laptop with 2 HMDI outs? (Please don't suggest the matrox dualhead or a desktop - I'm simply looking for a laptop with 2 HDMI out). Thank you.

my church tried out wireless hdmi and found it horrible. we spent about $750 on a quality unit with a 100 ft range. we needed it to work to about 75-80 ft. lots of signal drops, quality issues and other problems. so we gave up.

instead we now use a cat 6 system. pretty cheap for the set-up and cat 6 cable is REAL cheap even for 150 ft. we have 3 hdmi monitors run off a single mac easily now with this system. think we spent about $80 on the unit and another $15 on cat 6 cable and never looked back.
I can;t think of too many use cases for it, so I'd be surprised if there were more that just one or two that provide 2x HDMI out.
I believe a couple of the high-end MSI options do.

As an alternative, I believe there are a few different laptops with 1x HDMI and 1x DisplayPort, with DP easily converted to HDMI?


What are you trying to achieve with a laptop with 2x HDMI out? Would a dock be sufficient?

I want to simply run a laptop with 2 hdmi projectors running simultaneously (and wirelessly) with different videos going to each projector. I don't want a desktop because this system will be moving twenty times a day so I can do without the hassle of replugging in monitors and carrying towers etc). I've looked into the matrox dual head system but lots of feedback has told me there is a picture quality drop and it isn't great (my current laptop has 1xHDMI and 1xVGA which is useless). I can't believe this is that hard to find. Wow. Thank you for your replies. Much appreciated.
