I’m use to using two screen
Monitors at work.
The world has moved on Now LG created a LG 25" 21:9 2560x1080 UltraWide IPS LED Monitor
a few years ago that can split into 4 different windows at once. I ordered one on line my plan is to install it on My boat because it runs on Both DC. and AC power and runs on 1.5 amps.
Skoiern IV I has a 12 volt power setup. Now I also have two trusty Lap tops On Panasonic Tough Book CF 31 with Windows 10 and OpenPC software
and also my trusty 7 year Old Compaq with Windows XP Pro I’m very use too using (Stop the world, don’t keep changing good software!)
on which I am composing this message.. Both have Airplane type DC converters to run the Lap tops.
Now my question: I don’t want to use an inverter
if possible for thoughts in the know, has any of you had installed a mini PC’s ? Should I use one of my laptops to connect to this new Ultra wide monitor screen
? If so how do I deactivate the Lap top monitor screen while I’m connected to the New LG Ultra wide monitor?
OR should I buy a New 12 volt fan less Mini PC to run the LG monitor, as an independent system to my LT’s, If so which brand of Mini Computer would be best to run on 12 volt that is economic power consumption
The LG wide split monitor I plan to use for work on the boat for say writing say a Business plan which involves referencing a number of Documents at once split across a number of windows (a few times a year). But mostly some how adapt it for running Open CP software
for electronic navigation Charts
. And on another part of the monitor place Google earth
side by side for reference navigating in Tricky areas double checking the charts
Thanks for reading this message,
Whishing you all, Best navigational Experiences.
