Hi guys I'm going to buy two dell p2411h 24-inch monitors to use with my inspiron n5110 laptop.I will use photoshop or illustrator on 1 monitor and web browser on second. On laptop screen I will use IMs and maybe a video song. I am not into gaming stuff. Just wanted to know does my laptop support these monitors? I will use DisplayLink USB technology for dual setup. Can I get full HD resolution on both monitors?
Here are specs of my laptop.
Pros: Core i5 (Sandy Bridge)
Display card: Intel HD Graphics Family (Approx total memory: 1696 mb)
RAM: 4GB ddr3.
Drive: 500GB
 
I thought I knew the answer already but it was probably worth checking.
The answer is the same. 1 digital output (HDMI) and 1 analog output (VGA) only.
You should be able to use both external displays at 1080 resolution.

If you are using your laptop screen as well one of the external displays will mirror that laptop screen. Not the 3 separate display outputs you mentioned.

To get that 3 separate display output setup you're looking for you'll need a laptop has support for EyeFinity.
Like the HP ENVY17 mentioned in this article.

The DisplayLink USB setup you mentioned would only mirror the display input onto the other monitors. Like a repeater, so you could setup monitors to everyone around a conference table could view a monitor and see the same thing.

I think Matrox makes a device to do this with your laptop: http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/th2go/

NewEgg has it here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815106011&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-VideoCards-_-NA-_-NA

thanks for your reply. I don't think so that DisplayLink USB technology would only mirror the display. Have a look at this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnycEPymZF8
