Default Can I run 2 monitors on this get up?

Here is all the info I got on the PC i'm looking into. I know it ain't much but its all I can afford. My only question is, can I run a two monitor display on it and if so, can it handle it alright? I don't play video games, so it would most likely be running websites and movies, or office applications, etc. Thanks

Nvidia GeForce 6150 SE Graphics is onboard so you can only run one monitor.

As a solution you could buy a cheap 'dual head' PCIe graphics card.

Lenovo ThinkPad T410 - i7 620M - 8GB RAM - Crucial M4 120GB SSD - 250GB 2nd drive - Intel HD 3000 GPU - 1440x900 - Windows 7/8

6150 SE and LE chipsets are terrible, the computers I've used with it in lag on even youtube videos. Ugh
