    Since no one else has answered this, I'm not positive that you can or can't run more than one monitor off of a laptop, but you can always use a displaylink. I know lots of people at my work that run their monitors off of the laptop. You can use it as an extended display, you can mirror the laptop onto one monitor and use the other monitors as extended displays, and if you tweak the setting the right way, you can leave your laptop shut and still run the monitors almost like the laptop is a desktop.
