Looks as if it can output 2 monitors. IF those monitors are directly connected to the Nvidia GPU is the question, or are they routed through the Intel chip and only using the Nvidia GPU for rendering? Hopefully not the later.

Thanks for the comment and hopefully not really the later 😁. In any case what kind of gadget should I have to have another 2 or 3 output? And lastly, can you recommend a good & quality input card? I will just be doing small gigs. I will be really really thankful for any kind of suggestions/recommendations 😁✌️

Maybe buy a different laptop that can do more outputs without the need for adapters?
For input, I like the Magewell USB cards.

I also thought about this but i ended with a different brand. My fear for overheating ans the problem with the plugs made me „nope“

My fav supplyer for laptops : www.bestware.com
There its easy in the tec specs of the models what plug is were connected. I love it :)
