I didn’t get to read or post today. So solly cholly.
It started when I asked my company if I could borrow a laptop for an upcoming business trip, which they thought was a good idea. They even gave me extra stuff to do on the plane. 😛 When they dropped off the laptop, the IT person told me it was cheaper to “assign” it to me than to borrow one. Turns out I could keep the laptop if I wanted to, I just have to return the desktop. Eventually.
I asked if there was a docking station to go with the laptop, and they were kind enough to bring that over – with a tiny 14″ monitor. Blech. The 17″ monitor I currently have is a Dell and has to be returned with the Dell desktop; the 14″ IBM monitor comes with the IBM Thinkpad T42.
I did some checking to see if I could get a bigger monitor – and again, they said yes. (I work for a very nice company.) Then I found out that while on the docking station, the laptop monitor continues to work as a second screen. I’m in heaven – I love my dual monitor setup at home, and now I have it at work.
Except right now my desk has a Dell desktop, a 17″ monitor, a 14″ monitor, a 19″ monitor, a laptop with docking station, and my Palm LifeDrive. It looks like I opened a Best Buy in my cubicle.
