Samsung 57

Samsung announced another “high screen real estate” monitor for those who like to plaster a lot of content on a single screen … or more that likely, play games … UPerfect 18.5 in portable displaybut besides ogling this massive 57 inch wide display, it is definitely not something I need these days.

There was once a time that I was busy with graphic design, page layout and preparing printing jobs (link), but these days it is only occasional … and  more about needing space for spreadsheets and real time financial charts (trading and investing). Portable 15 inch CoCoPar displayFor that, I’ve been pretty comfortable with an additional portable display plugged into my MacBook Air M2no regrets. 

That’s not to say that I’m not looking for a little more space than the inexpensive 15.6” portable display I added back in the spring … so I’m going to take this small one to the condo (leave it there) and order an 18.5” UPerfect Portable display and will VESA mount it on an adjustable arm.
