The Two for One Monitor Upgrade

The Two for One Monitor Upgrade

A couple months back Unplggd reader Marshall Dunbar shared his dual screen "hobbyist" setup (which his wife countered, describing it as his obsession). He's written back with an update, revealing a pared down monitor setup, trading in dual 20" displays for a single 27" with a sidekick iPad, cleaning up his act for the arrival of his "iBaby".

Marshall shares: "The original dual display setup including the monitors, iSight, and desk mount will be sold online tonight! It is now my plan to only upgrade/update every 2 years. You can tell by my desktop that I have another "iBaby"! Yelp, that's a sonogram of our baby (8 weeks into pregnancy). This helped me decide to slow down on my hobby/obsession!"
