Would this laptop work ok with external monitor?

It's a Dell XPS 15.6 laptop. I would use it with an external monitor for photo editing using LR3 and PSE9, and raw files. I'd use an external drive for additional storage & backup.

Connect it to a monitor for photo editing, use alone when on the go, that's the idea. After coupons, it's $1400. Here's the specs...

Intel® Coreā„¢ i7-2620M processor 2.70 GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0 up to 3.40 GHz

Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit

VIDEO CARD NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M 2GB graphics with Optimus

MEMORY 8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 Memory

HARD DRIVE 750GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive

HD DISPLAY 15.6 FHD B+RGLED TL (1920x1080) and Skype-Certified 2.0MP HD Webcam

INTERNAL OPTICAL DRIVE Tray Load Blu-ray Disc BD-Combo (Reads BD and Writes to DVD/CD) with Roxio Creater 2011

WIRELESS + BLUETOOTH Intel© Centrino© Advanced-N 6230 & Bluetooth 3.0

SOUND OPTIONS JBL 2.1 Speakers with Waves Maxx Audio 3 + Creative SoundBlaster X-FI MB 1.2
