How do I use the X230+Qubes 4.0 with external monitor of at least 1080p or
higher? I understand that a dock station (Ultrabase?) is required to be able
to use the HiDPI external monitor with X230.
What smallest dock station would you propose for this purpose? Is there
possibly some other, more portable way, to get X230 to use HiDPI external
You don't need a dock for this - the x230 supports 1920x1200 through HDMI
and 2560x1600 through the DisplayPort.
Of course, a dock is always nice.
This is really interesting and thank you a tone for this information. I dont see the HDMI output from my X230 but there seem to be a Mini Displayport. Very nice.
You can also mod the x230 with a board and updated panel to get 1080p on
a larger IPS panel - very portable and a real boost to the x230.
Can you please elaborate more on this? What kind of board and updated panel is it? I didnt know that X230 can be modded to have 1080p IPS display at all. This would possibly solve most need to have external display for simple media.
