External Monitor and Keyboard for G60

I have a G60 and my husband was wondering if he could hook a bigger external monitor and an external keyboard.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

I think you may need to be a bit more specific about your model number.   ; )

 

E.g. here's the product specifications for one which matches your description so far:

(via Search products for
     G60
)

 

Notice that under External Ports that device has a VGA and some USB ports.   That's all you need to hook up an external monitor and plug in a receiver  for a wireless mouse and keyboard.   FWIW that's the configuration I'm using now with my HP Tablet.   ; )

Re: External Monitor and Keyboard for G60

You sure can!  There are a lot of options out there, you can even configure dual screens using an external monitor and the laptops monitor together, ergonomic keyboards and mice, etc.  Computers are fun in regards to all the accessories you can mix and match with.  Just be sure that you or your husband verify that equipment you select is compatible with your laptop.  If you need help come back to the forum with exact models and brands and we can help you determine if they will work.  Good Luck!
