    Bonobo Laptop Three Monitors

    According to System 76's support, the Bonobo Extreme model can output to 3 monitors simultaneously: laptop's monitor + two external monitors. Can owner of this model confirm that this is true?

    I know I don't really qualify as an owner, but would this work?

    isantop works for System76. He probably just took one of the test models that they have in the office and plugged two monitors in it.

    Multiple monitor setup is not an issue under Linux, so long as your hardware supports it. Such a powerful Nvidia card will surely support three monitors.

    Great, thanks. This is exactly what I am looking for. I have invested a lot time trying to get the 3rd display working on my laptop, had numerous attempts on the DisplayLink adapter (http://plugable.com/products/uga-2k-a), but every time it ends with frustration. I am using i3wm BTW.

    Was this using the 765M or the 780M video card?
