Hi, I want to hook up my Galaxy Book3 i5-1335U to an additional 2 FHD monitors for extended use which I plan to trade on. Is this possible to do on this laptop with an HDMI adapter? And if so which adapter would be better USB A to HDMI or USB C to HDMI? Also is the processor and graphics card sufficient enough to run 2 additional monitors used for 2D real time chart rendering for stock trading. In other words can it handle it and/or will it put too much strain on the system? I appreciate any feed back. Thank you!

According to a couple reviews on YouTube you should be able to do it but you'll need a dongle but I think for your use case your overpaying for the wrong hardware use case. Why not just get a desktop? Or a macbook air m2 which has Thunderbolt 4 and more capabilities.

Can you provide the model # for your machine? I'm getting conflicting configurations on Google looking for the ports you have

But if I can give you any insight. You have I think 1 hdmi port and 1 usb-c port for charging/data and another thunderbolt 4 port.

You can do a thunderbolt 4 to hdmi or display port. I'm guessing you recharge via usb-c so you may be better getting a Samsung usbc to hdmi dongle which includes a charging port on the dongle. Meant for phones or tablets but could be used for yiur setup.

Lastly since you most likely have a FHD screen and not using anything higher for secondary screens you should be good. Just dont do a bunch of 3d stuff on the final setup. It looks to be fanless and you might need to get a fan stand to blow air across the bottom of laptop to increase the passive cooling ability

Its a Silver Samsung Galaxy Book3 i5- 1335U 15.6"  model: NP754XFG-KB2US. 

The ports are: 1 x HDMI 1.4 and 2 x USB 3.1 (Gen 1 Type-C) and 2 x USB 3.2 (Gen 1 Type-A). And no thunderbolt 4 port. So if I hook up one monitor to HDMI how can I hook up a 2nd monitor? Im not even sure if the type C port can support display.

I know I said its my laptop but I didn't actually buy it yet. I was planning to buy it this week as long as im sure I could hook up two monitors and that they don't overheat the system and cause the fan to constantly run and slow everything down. I'll still buy it if it can atleast support one monitor without much strain. But the U series of intel chips i know are made for very low wattage of 15w for very low power. So they don't need a big fan. Im pretty sure this model has a fan, although a very small one with very tiny air vents on the bottom.

I appreciate your input and time helping me. Thanx
