What is your question? If you're asking whether or not you will be able to connect an external monitor to your Chromebook, the answer is yes...via HDMI or VGA.
will you need a VGA Adapter? I might have to use the beamer at my university for a lecture... you just have mini VGA stuff in there ?
If it has a VGA connection it'll work out might just look like crap resolution though lol
As far as I can tell (and I haven't tried it), there is no support for extended displays (dual screen) in ChromeOS. If someone has tried it and can confirm/deny, I'd be grateful :)
My Samsung Series 5 has a VGA port, and there is supposed to be an adapter to VGA. I can't find any of these for sale. You can't try an external monitor until you can connect it.
