Do you mean 2 EXTERNAL monitors ? Yes, with a right dock/hub you can connect 2 external monitors to your machine.


Your machine is a CTO machine, I do not have its specs but it should have same ports as the following machine


             HP ENVY Laptop 17-cg1490nd


One very useful port is SuperSpeed USB Type-C® 10Gbps signaling rate (USB Power Delivery, DisplayPort™ 1.4, HP Sleep and Charge which allow you to use USB-C Gen 5 dock to connect to your machine and get all features 


   (a) to use multiple monitors as shown on a table on page 5 of the following document (I tested it),


   (b) you can connect to few other devices using USB ports ....

   (c) it gives 100W out; your machine requires 90W charger therefore you should be able to get single cable option (I'm using now on my machine with 65W charger, you machine should get the same)
