HP ENVYm6 1178sa

HP Recommended
m6
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

my work laptop is a macbook pro 15" 2017 and currently it sits under 2 HP monitors, connected by DVI via adapters allowing extended screens, with a wireless mouse and keyboard so i can keep the lid shut and work off the two screens.

 

The question is can i do the same with my HP ENVYm6 1178sa once i give them theirs back? the monitors have DVI and VGA (No HDMI) whilst my HP has one VGA, One HDMI and 4 usb (i think 2 are USB3?).

 

so far,I know i can use wireless keyboard and mice through Bluetooth, but is there a way of matching the rest of the connectivity that the mac book does?

The specs of your machine is

For monitors, uou should be able to connect to 2 monitors using

 

   (a) HDMI: Use a direct HDMI to DVI cable to connect to the first monitor.

   (b) VGA: Use direct VGA-VGA cable (no conversion) to connect to the second monitor.

 

>>>> but is there a way of matching the rest of the connectivity that the mac book does? 

What is the rest ? Your machine has

          1 USB 2.0 port
          3 USB 3.0 ports

That is more than enough for your mouse and keyboard. You can free up USB ports if you wish to use BT for mouse and keyboard.

 

Regards.
