Can Lenovo Yoga 13 power 2 HDMI monitors

I'm considering getting a Lenovo Yoga 13 I see the processor is a 3rd Generation Intel Core i7-3537U Processor( 2.00GHz 1600MHz 4MB) http://shop.lenovo.com/GB/en/laptops/ideapad/yoga/yoga-13/?&cid=uk|semd|se|google|lenovoukdirect|z20EDC|s

When I look up the Intel link http://ark.intel.com/products/72054/ it says # of Displays Supported 3

However there only seems to be one output port. I want to avoid using USB converters or anything like that, I just want to power 2 HDMI monitors.

Some advise would really help.

If the laptop chasis/motherboard offers only one HDMI port, then only one device can be connected. It does not matter how many monitors the internal chip supports.

HDMI 2.0 and above supports Dual View (two signals in a single HDMI cable from a single port). Yoga 13 does not seem to have an HDMI 2.0 port, so it will not support dual monitors, even though the Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports them. To be sure, you should contact Lenovo technical support with your laptops UPC and ask them directly. An expensive solution is to buy an HDMI 2.0 cable, a splitter and an extra monitor and just give it a shot :)
