Working from a small laptop can be a nightmare. It’s impossible to split the screen without hurting your eyes. You might as well have to see an eye doctor and get prescription glasses if you are continuously switching between desktops and tabs. Amidst this frustration, getting a portable display or monitor to pair with your laptop is the go-to solution. Getting a second screen is the best option for presenting, opening two programs on full-screen, or enhancing your gaming experience if you have subscribed to Spectrum internet for better speed like me.
