I travel with that and a hard-wired connection dongle all the time.

FWIW, you can also connect multiple monitors via HDMI cables or cast to an external display with a wireless screencast dongle. I have 3 different Surface Pro tablets of varying ages - all still in daily use.

There seems to be a dongle for everything !

Good to know. I did not see the MS Surface myself. However, he took it to Best Buy (which is what you do in the NYC area, I guess) and they told him it couldn't be done. LOL

That 2nd problem had to do with an XP machine. I am under the impression that one of the problems with XP is that many machines of that era did not have video cards capable of HDMI (resolution) output. At least that was what I discovered with a little Googling.

All my machines would, of course.
