… you will never go back.
My computing life changed with the addition of multiple monitors. Much of my work was simplified. I was able to multitask more effectively. My writing process (and I write a lot) changes when I am on a laptop and I am travelling and when I am at home with the mother ship.
A friend in England – whom I happily saw during my last trip across – sent me a note about the MacBook Pro with multiple monitors. I have had my “Get A Mac” Fund going for a while and, as the goal is proximate, I have to think about what to do.
But this is attractive. From the OWC Blog:
Including the built-in Retina display, the new 2012 MacBook Pro 15? can run four displays [OORAH!] at their native resolution.
- Retina on laptop @ “best for Retina”
- iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt
- iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt/DisplayPort
- LG monitor @ 1920 x 1200 via HDMI
Moving images and media didn’t create any lag and we were able to play video on all four displays simultaneously.
This is verrrrry interesting.
It may be time.
