Hopefully you'll remember this feeling and next time do some research such as reading the specifications.

And hopefully you will never be in a situation where you read . .

"Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on up to two external displays, at millions of colors"

. . . in the technical specs, then spend a boatload of money and find it doesn't work that way at all and that you need additional hardware to make it work.

Maybe this is the first time you've ever needed to purchase a new cable for some gear and to balk at the price. Many others will have learned the 'never assume anything when it comes to wiring!' lesson back in the 90s.

Fully expected to spend extra money and purchased the recommended connectors only to find they don't work and that I need to purchase even more.
