My E6420 laptop will let me run 3 external displays via the docking station and the laptop screen at once.
1) Third external monitor is only 1280x1024, first two are 1680x1050, laptop screen is 1600x900. Inconsistant resolutions/DPIs result in annoying mismatches because windows assumes all have the same DPI and treats the unmatched vertical space between tall and short screens as a cursor stopping wall.
2) Short (badly snarled?) cables mean I can't position my laptop+dock conveniently relative to the external monitors.
3) I still only have 6 megapixels across my 4 screens at work; vs 8 across 3 at home[^].
4) If my laptop had an ivy bridge CPU I'd have a theoretical max of 5 displays (3IGP + 2 quadro) at the cost of having to plug one into the laptop itself after docking; but IT is still buying laptops with last years CPU model inside.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
