The laptop I have is this one

Probably, but don't expect to run a game at high frame rates in that configuration.

definitely two screens, maybe all three. i've never had 2 externals connected before myself (to a laptop).

gaming on such a hodgepodge setup isnt going to be pretty. agree that framerates will be low unless you're running a powerful laptop (didnt check specs).
