Hello, I recently jump the Windows ship and hopped on Apple's by picking up a mid-2014 MacBook Pro, i7, 16GB, 512GB SSD, 750M 2GB dedicated GPU. I must say it is pretty sweet. I do a lot of work at home, but once or twice a week I go into the office. I like the idea of having a desktop at home to work on, but the portability of the MacBook. So, I would like to know if I can use the MacBook as a desktop, you know with a keyboard, mouse and external monitors. Here is a list of concerns/questions that I have: 1. Can I use it with the top down? If so, will it cause any overheating problems? Can I use 2 or 3 external monitors at once? Could I use Bluetooth mouse, keyboard and headphones while the lid is closed? Is there a stand or something I could/should use? Will there be any resolution issues going from Retina Display to 1080x1920? Will battery life suffer from keeping it plugged in mostly all of the time? Will there be an issue with leaving the device on pretty much all of the time, maybe using sleep instead of shutting it down? I mean, the only time I am thinking about shutting it down is when I transfer the device from home to work. or if I bring it somewhere. I think that is it. I know that I could build a more powerful desktop, but I wanted this and went with it. I would surely appreciate any advice, suggestions and/or help from anyone who has any experience or anything with this. Thank you in advance for your help!
