As many of you know, I’m not a fan of using multiple displays, but doing so can be particularly problematic with a docked laptop configuration. Given this, I went into the next phase of my experiment of using a laptop fulltime with a bit of trepidation. And after weeks of experimenting, I’m pretty much back where I started.
It’s been over a month since I wrote the previous post in this series, so it’s understandable if anyone was wondering whether I’d drifted off and forgotten about it completely. But that’s not the case: I have literally been using this laptop---a 15-inch HP Envy 15---as my main computer since an early August lightning strike took down my Intel NUC. And I’ve been struggling to figure out a dual-display configuration that makes sense for me.
