I did not realize until after I bought this laptop that there is no docking station available. There is only 1 HDMI port and no other display ports so is it possible to connect 2 monitors to this? Can the HDMI be split into either 2 vga or dvi ports?

I understand you are looking to connect ENVY 17 m7-j020dx to dual monitors. Here is a document on the different cables and the output.
Hope it helps.

You could use hdmi to the monitor with hdmi. If your computer has HDMI audio, it should be set as the default audio device in Windows audio properties (available from Windows Control Panel). The monitor or TV with HDMI must have speakers to hear audio.
Hope this helps you.

This computer could use a USB- Multi-Display USB 2.0 to DVI/VGA/HDMI Adapter or hdmi only for the dual monitor.

I also just purchased a HP ENVY TouchSmart m7-j020dx not realizing there is no docking station for it. Does anyone know for sure that HP does not make a docking station for this model laptop?
I really need the ability to work with a real keyboard and large 27" monitor without having to plug a separate monitor and USB keyboard in. Besides, my desk couldn't handle the laptop being opened while connected to exterior devices.

I am also interesting in purchasing a docking station for the HP Envy laptop. Please advise to the availability. Are there any docking stations that are Universal that would work? I need to hook up external monitors (2), external keyboard and external mouse.

Technically there cannot be a typical docking station because there are no external conections on the laptop to attach to a dock. The only thing I have found is a usb connected device that will allow 2 monitors as well as extra usb port where you could connect a usb keyboard and mouse.
You can see a review of one here:
Not sure if i can post this link, please remove if necesary and I apologize.
