Maybe buying a DP-mDP cable to connect to the SP6 as a monitor is a financially better option than buying a VGA monitor. I imgaine, a cheap cheap VGA monitor has to be more expensive than a DP-mDP cable?
Thanks for the tip! tinyitx, you've just saved me from purchasing a Chromecast (but not the secondary monitor, unfortunately). I wasn't aware of the huge difference in capabilities between a Chromecast and a DP adapter until spiralling off into the internet pages after your comment. Of course, the price is also lower. Both the adapter and monitor are stated to arrive tomorrow, so I'll be able to narrow down the problem shortly.
