Laptops are great for getting things done on the go, but sometimes you need to stretch out and settle into your work at home or in the office. Computer monitors offer the luxury and display size of a desktop computer without limiting you to a stationary workspace. Designers and film editors use monitors to zoom into the details of their projects and spread their ideas over multiple screens. Gamers use them to improve the quality of their graphics and gameplay.
