    Dell XPS 13 Developer edition with two external monitors

    Hi

    I'm considering purchasing the Dell XPS 13 Developer edition.

    One of the things I'd really like to do though is plug in two external 24" monitors (not just one). I understand that the display port should support that functionality at a hardware level, but does Ubuntu and the graphics driver? Has anyone tried it?


    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Nobody? I can't believe I'm the only one that wants to know this... would I be better off asking elsewhere?

    Hello. I am very interested in doing the same. Maybe there is some sort of connector for the mini port to send the signal to both monitors. I cant tell you about the software side. Lets wait for some with better knowledge. Cheers

    Keep me posted as well. I tried via a DisplayLink docking station but failed for lack of proper drivers.

    Did anyone every get an answer to this.

    My understanding is that with DP1.2 you can have two monitors on one DP port.
