Nice indeed. How easy and more importantly practical / desirable is it to use such a laptop as a desktop replacement at home, with multiple monitors (3+)?

I'm about to pull-the-trigger on an HP Z series workstation in the coming weeks, but since I do travel a fair amount, this does have appeal. I'd rather not make two purchases, especially if not necessary...

X1 is a mere toy, just like the mac air... anyhow, you should look at the W520 as a desktop replacement.. you will be able to get what you need.. I posted about why I believe the W520 to be a good choice here..

https://futures.io/tech-support/8844-lenovo-laptops-trading.html

my complete setup, including lenovo monitors, replacing the 320GB with 750GB 7200RPM, and adding a msata 80GB... is about $4K... I am opting for fastest CPU, all RAM, bigger GPU, etc.. my laptops usually last me 2-3 years..

and you should still have a desktop, look at the lower Z Class. i.e. Z200... assuming of course you were looking at the Z600 or Z800..

I currently have a W510 that I use for paper-trading. I decided to not have a laptop be a desktop replacement. After looking at a few Z's, I did narrow it down to a Z200. Good to hear that you feel it would be a good choice. I didn't buy it yet, but will soon. New desk just arrived which is next...

Multiple displays

If you guys looking at multi display solution, might consider
Please register on futures.io to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

USB 2.0 UGA Multi Display adapter
sorry, may have pasted links and stuff, no promotion for specific product, you can get them on ebay between 40 and 70 bucks and this way if you running Vista or Win7 you can have upto 6 displays on your laptop, they plug-in into your USB ports, so it is pretty mobile and still cost effective solution

End choice of inputs is large VGA, DVI, HDMI etc..

Markets are logical and
