  1. I'm using two Lenovo 24" 1920x1200 max output resolution monitors for my workspace. I'm trying to find a way to be able to connect the dual monitors and have them run at full res without necessarily having to buy a full docking station. The laptop I'm using is a Dell Inspiron 13 7373, which has one HDMI, 2 usb, one usb c with DP alternate port. Related questions: 1) How do I know what is the maximum resolution that my laptop can support? I've purchased a couple of hubs before, and they would support atmost one of the displays in 1920x1200, but not both simultaneously. They usually say they can support dual hdmi and upto 4k. 2) Related question: how can I translate a hub's 4k display support capability to it's ability to support dual 1920x1200 display support? Maybe it's a simple method, but I feel like I'm missing something. Bottom line: has any body tried something like this before? If so, what did you use, or what were you looking for? And how did you know your laptop/machine could support it?
  2. Thanks man! But I'm curious to also know what my expected normal core temperatures should be for my machine, and where I can find it.
  3. Hey, new here! Long time follower of LTT, first time poster. I was hoping somebody here could give me some insight into this My laptop is a 2017 Dell 7373 with an Intel i7 8550U. Intel CPUs are notorious for heating up, and Dell... well. The thing is, I can't seem to find a good way to figure out if my laptop is running too hot or not (no exact guidelines to compare to). The most I could do is get CoreTemp and the temperatures are weird. Apparently, the processor temperature (if healthy) should not go beyond 75 degC. But mine seems to be either bordering on it under mild use, or regularly cross it into 85 degC territory, when charging and on a laptop cooler. When almost idle, it is always around 60 degC when on a charger, but this drops to ~40 degC when on battery. Question: Are these normal numbers, or should I be worried? I've considered opening up the back case and using a can of compressed air, but I don't know the risks involved. Any guidance would be really helpful.
