Connecting External VGA Monitor to Inspiron 15 Touch

This question is not answered

I would like to buy an Inspiron 15 Touch but I am struggling to find information about connecting my existing VGA monitors. As I understand it the Inspiron 15 Touch only has an HDMI Port, so firstly I would need an adapter. Secondly, I can't find any information about the resolutions that the Integrated Graphics will support when an external monitor is attached. I also want to be sure that I can dual screen with an extended desktop.

My existing VGA monitors are:

1920 x 1080 (also has DVI port)

1440 x 900

1280 x 1024 (also has DVI port)

The HDMI to VGA adapters I'm considering are:

If somebody could confirm that this will work or advise otherwise I would be very grateful. Thank you.
