|In the past it seems that you could have: the laptop screen and either the vga or hdmi - but not all three. Or you can have both vga and hdmi - but no laptop display.|
But more recently it seems that things may have changed; see this discussion - which covers it:
Options around may include:
- a very basic approach - a vga splitter' a passive (Y) cable or a box style.
- a vga - DA (distribution amplifier); one input two or more outputs.
- an HDMI splitter; see the various styles here:
Something along the lines of this product - http://www.displaylink.com
Or another form of "docking station" proper.
Or a usb-video adapter; more than a few hits here about those... (Read the reviews carefully?)
However you resolve this - use good quality cables; the difference is sometimes very noticeable - especially for vga; and also long(er) hdmi runs...
