Hi,

 

There are few things I would like to say:

 

1. The machine does not have VGA port. It has

 

• 2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0
• 1 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0
1 HDMI
• 1 RJ-45 (LAN)
• 1 Headphone-out/microphone-in combo jack

 

That HDMI port is for you to connect to an external BIGger monitor for you to enjoy games if you wish.

 

2. Not true, I connect to external monitors nearly all my laptops .

 

Playing games on a laptop can always cause "overheating", no matter what.

 

Regards.

BH
