@richard10250 , thank you for your submission. Would you mind please adding:
2. some photos of your gear to bring it all to life?

Hurray! I have gotten 5 independent displays running off my T570 laptop using the Akitio Node. Three displays off the Node and two displays off the Laptop. Fun times!
You could technically have 3 displays off the laptop 🙂
