I haven't tried this yet on my M11x, but I did it several times on my Inspiron 11z. There are a couple things you should know:

1) You can output HD just fine on the Intel 4500MHD. It has built-in ability to handle HD content just fine.

2) To enable the external display through HDMI, you will need to right-click on the desktop, and click Personalize. When you get the Personalize (wallpaper, themes, etc) screen, click on Display on the lower left, then click Change Display Settings on the resulting window, top left. Once you are in Display Settings, you should see the external TV/monitor in addition to the built-in display. There you can change your settings for mirror or extend desktop and so on.

Hope that helps.
