I know a few people, (one with a 15" and other two with 13"), who just use their MBP as clean and simple of a desk setup can be. They like it because theres practically no clutter in their setup. Its simple and no extra money spent on big monitors. No external monitors, no ext speakers, just the MBP and a mouse and ext hard drive. Not sure how they do it. Computing on a single monitor just feels so outdated right now, especially after you use dual 24" and dual 27" monitors at work and home. Just surfing the web and playing music, I could settle with a single monitor. Its not the greatest for screen real estate, but i wouldnt spend the cash on a dual monitor setup if this was all I used my computer for. But once you start doing stuff like typing docs, working on spreadsheets, ya...you really benefit from that 2nd monitor and especially if its two external monitors. I even used a 1 ext monitor setup in combo with my MBP display, but it wasnt quite the same experience as two ext monitors the same size. Im sure anyone would love to trim their computer setup, means more cash in your pocket, Im always a fan of keeping my stuff simple at home. Afterall, the average person spends more time on their work computer than their home computer, but computing on a single laptop screen just feels so limited, especially a 13", but even a 15" is small...too much max and minimizing for my tastes. Its tedious. Maybe im just spoiled, but with dual monitor setup, Im always web surfing with both, constantly turning my head left and right. I do prefer the look of single monitors vs dual as it just just looks cleaner and less clutter, also more free desk space, but it would have to be one of those 30" ultra wide monitors for me to consider going back to a single monitor. For those who do this, how do you do it? Have you ever had ext monitors before? If so, what made you trim down?
