If I were to finally listen to GazChap (who is sometimes right about things) and buy an external monitor so that I'm not screwing myself up to look at my laptop screen 12 hours a day, what would I need to be looking at? I'm so long out of the world of tech hardware I don't know my HDMI from my ... see, I don't even know how to finish this sentence.

My laptop is a Dell XPS 15 and does have a HDMI port, if that helps. My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 if that matters. Is it much of a muchness these days? IDK what I'm doing. :DD

Thanks in advance :luv:

Just get a 1080p monitor with the right inputs. Unless you need something fancy they're all much of a muchness. This one would be fine: https://www.dell.com/en-uk/work/shop/de ... ccessories

Also, if you fancy a trip to Bedfordshire, I've just upgraded to a super-monitor so I now have six spares.

I have a 27” Samsung you can have. I only recently upgraded. It’s currently sat doing nothing.

Very. But it didn't, it replaced 4. I got two more from Gaywood when he got the same monitor I did and was going to honestly this is such a dull story I can't even finish the

I had visions of you working in some kind of igloo made of inwards-faving monitors

(Edited, becaus that was bad even by my standards)

It's just occurred to me that this makes no sense. If we went there in March for the VR, they're due here next?

I was thinking that, but happy to go with whatever you decided :D

However my car is currently off the road so that might force our hand.

Oh yeah :belm:

Apparently I have compartmentalised things sufficiently that the flip-flop-to-and-from-Mop is classed as an entirely different chain of events in my head to other meetups ;)
