I dislike reading long articles (like history of World War II) sitting at my computer desk. The living room couch is far more comfortable. But how would you suggest I, economically, set things up so I can use my present computer AND sit on the couch in my livingroom?
The distance from my computer to where I sit in the living room is 16 feet. Should I think of wireless connection to a laptop or should I opt to run a cable from my tower to the laptop? Or how would one do it? Which is more practical--which would be cheaper? I'd want to be able to switch between my laptop and my regular desktop monitor. I'd want to be able to follow any links I might see on my laptop just as I can do now with my mouse and desktop setup. (I don't suppose I really need a full laptop...just another monitor and mouse--is there just a lightweight 15" monitor-only out there with a mouse that I could obtain? What about used equipment?
I have usb 2.0 ports and a firewire port.
Any and all responses appreciated.
