Hi! This video is way outside the realm of what I normally to and to be honest, I have no idea how you're gonna like it. But, well, trying new things is what makes life fun! I'd also like to apologize for the sub-par audio in this video. You are in fact hearing a weird rumble sometimes and, well, oops.

@j m The problem is twofold: Lack of knowledge and lack of initial availability. The first is that very few people, even in the IT space seem to know that there are Linux distributions that are incredibly easy to set up and use. This knowledge may seem mundane for those who have even a passing interest in Linux, but extraordinary for most regular people. This is because of the second issue: Very few sold machines have Linux installed as their primary desktop OS by default. When most people buy machines, they buy them new, usually through retailers like Best Buy or through SI's like Lenovo or Apple and very few of these machines sold have any other OS installed other than Windows and Mac OS (and Chrome OS). This induces a death spiral where people's interest in Linux distro decreases, which causes machines that ship with Linux distros to be less popular, which drives further decreases in interest, and so on. What can be done to combat this? Not much. I've gathered an isolated success story where an old machine was rejuvenated by installing Linux on it for an acquaintance, but such success stories are extremely isolated in this consumption-driven economy where people are content with throwing out old machines and buying new ones. I will say that perpetuating stereotypes doesn't help the situation and I would have preferred a video where the topic was adequately converted. (Maybe a possible new video idea? Probably not, because he explains that he uses these machines for work, and, in that case, one should focus on improving processes that work because the cost of transition may be large. Though, you can always try doing it with a burner laptop so that it doesn't interfere with the current process.)

so happy this video exists. Out of many, MANY good points in this video, I only wish to confirm one - energy cost. Of course, most of the YT-kiddies will never thought about that (as their parents pay the bills :)) but I recently switched from using my PC for work to actually use the laptop company provided (you know global 2020-working from home phenomenon). Yes, laptop stutters sometimes, my PC is much better. So why I switched to the laptop? Because my PC setup (that includes two monitors) consumes around 650W of power just to display some chrome browser tabs :) Setup with the laptop and the smaller of the monitors - below 50W... And since my wage doesn't change depending on my wfh setup... the choice was obvious :)

I also bought the Lumia 950XL as a CS student and wrote my final exam for game programming, because my laptop died while writing. The problem was that the only apps you could install was through the sparse windows store and compiling code was out of the question. I thought exactly like you that Continuum was what would change the market and make the tablet desktop replacement through a dock a real thing. I tried to do the same thing with the surface pro 4, but had to return 3 devices because of the gpu literally melting in the first batch that arrived in Europe. I’m still waiting for the day this will be possible and that a eGPU can be connected so that the performance is minimal and the flexibility maximum

Woah I was with you 100% until you dropped the Linux hate. Very off-putting, I have been an IT professional and PC enthusiast for a long time and frankly, I think the "OS vs. OS" debate is immature. I normally really enjoy your content but now I'm trying to figure out where that comment came from. A place of ignorance or arrogance? A computer, and the software hosted on it are just tools. Some of us are familiar with only a specific set or type of tools and may try to express superiority over those unlike themselves, ignorance begets arrogance. Others can get things done with any toolset handed to them, because they are skilled in their craft. The reason you gave is "I like to do work on my computer, not work on my computer" ok, but all I hear is this: "I like to do work on my computer with the tools I am already familiar with, and am not willing to learn a different way to do said work." Hey, that's fine and dandy, you should use the tools that work best for you, but that has nothing to do with Linux itself or any other platform, OS or tool. That is all you buddy, you should own it.

Seriously though, if you are the least bit nerdy about computers, is it even possible that you haven't tried converting a laptop to a desktop?- I used to do it all the time at home. Although, to be fair, it required more than just a single cable. I needed 1 VGA-cable and two usb (1 for keyboard, 1 for mouse)

This video was nothing short of excellent, and exactly what I was looking for. The only thing I think that's missing out is that a lot of people can get the same experience without spending money on a dock. If you only need to plug in a monitor and speakers you can just do that directly to your laptop (+power cable). Sure it's 2 extra things to always plug in but that's worth saving $100 or so.

I have an arguement for having both for someone who does light gaming and media consumption on a laptop and more heavy gaming on a desktop. I have a low power thin and light for doing basically just youtube, anime, and minecraft. Then I have a desktop for far cry, and borderlands, etc. I have an i5 in my laptop but I got a good deal and was only planning on getting an i3. Both would be more than enough for me. Then i have an i7 and a gtx 10 serries in my desktop. I really did not like carrying around more horsepower than i needed when I only did more demanding computer tasks at my desk at home anyways. If I ever replace my laptop im just gonna get a nice chromebook. I only needed the i5 to run matlab when I was in college but now i dont need that and could live without minecraft on my laptop. But yeah tldr nice desktop and a chromebook gang.

After 2020 she's basically running a desktop setup as a teacher off her laptop and now that they're looking at going back to school, could definitely use something for hybrid teaching.

You just won my subsription with 15:11 I was an occasional watcher, but that just made it. That "lust making" is the reason I am seriously dissapointed - sometimes even disgusted - with many tech youtuber giants like Marques Brownlee. (He was so much more appealing the time when he was reviewing ATH-M50. Now he is just advertising this year's/quarter's/month's shiny new stuff.) I use a docking monitor (ThinkVision P24h) with an AMD fitted cheap-ish ThinkPad, by the way. Had the exact same docking unit as you, but since I had to but a new monitor I went ahead and got rid of the box on my desk too (I was also frustrated by that hateful I-work-only-if-you-buy-a-matching-dell-laptop power button)! Both on a dual-arm stand. With linux - booyah! Cheers from Hungary, a fellow who learned things about US's mains from you - it is indeed not (as) bad as I thought!.

I am a developer and I also use my laptop as a main working machine. (ASUS) I have 2 extra monitors connected. Unfortunately only 1 extra monitor works with windows (some stupid driver constraint). I can either use my 2 extra monitors (1 HDMI, 1 VGA) and no laptop screen, or 1 laptop screen and 1 extra monitor... In Linux I can use all 3 screens without any problems. The main thing why I use my laptop only, CPU fan is not that loud and it is fast enough for my work.. (i7) The only thing I miss about a desktop PC: Gaming. My Laptop can only play some older games... and it sucks. But I found a solution: "GeForce Now" (Cloud Gaming). Anyways I will try to get a laptop with thunderbolt so I can use a good external graphics card, not only for games but also for machine learning stuff.

My company makes us use HP laptops with docks. If my laptop locks its screen or outputs black for more than a second, the dock shuts off both monitors as if they were disconnected, and it's purely luck whether or not cycling the power to the monitors will turn them back on. I have literally spent 30 minutes in my office, cycling power over and over to my monitors to get them both to start working again. Oh, and to add insult to injury, if you don't wait at least 15 seconds between turning the monitor off and turning it back on, it will not get any output going at all.

I really liked this video and I kind of thought docks had gone away (obviously they haven't). I'm wondering why you prefer this solution over plugging in a display port, usb hub, and power cord. Yes it is 3 cables instead of 1, but may avoid some of the compatibility issues and probably cost less. (OK if you want ethernet it would be plugging in 4 cables) Buying an extra power cord would also help with the "Quick and ready to go" aspect you spoke about for putting the laptop in a bag and leaving with no hassle. Just curious. Thanks for the video :)

My new laptop doesn't use USB-C power delivery because that standard won't handle the 135 wats of its maximum power draw. I spent a good amount of time looking for a high quality dock without that feature because I don't want to waste energy or pay for that, and ideally has a minidisplayport for my monitor, came up empty and gave up. I just deal with a mess of wires every time I set up on my desk instead. If anyone in the comments has a good recommendation, I'd appreciate it.

I do the same thing with my Surface Book 2. I find it amazing because I get multiple monitors and as well as that because of how the surface book works sometimes I have it set up as a screen based drawing tablet. Every game I put on it too tends to run waaayyyyy better because the resolution of it is 2000x3000 and many games have a hard time trying to play at 1080p on it, most of the time I have to do it in that resolution and have a downscaling option but when I play on the monitor it runs way better than even my PC.

As a PC gamer, I have a decently beefy computer: RX 580 GPU, Ryzen 5 CPU (obtained today), and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. I also use a chromebook regularly. Honestly, schoolwork doesn't require having a very powerful computer, and it also plays android games and supports linux Debian. It's primary benefit is mostly being a second screen that my main PC doesn't have to waste resources rendering while playing highly processing intensive games like minecraft with upwards of 30 mods, The Evil Within 1/2, Ace Combat 7 with .ini tweaks, and other games. It also allows me to play my nintendo switch docked with headphones and listening to a video or music in the background to get full use out of my 2 display setup. All in all, it's a pretty great setup, other than my main drive in my PC being a slow piece of shit, it would be basically perfect for me.

Docking works fine in Linux for me. I'm still running a T430 that I bought for $40 Edit: Hit enter too quickly. For what I need out of a laptop, my eight year old laptop does it great. Look at you spending that slick MRpostr money on a brand new laptop tho. If that's what works for you and you're getting your money's worth, cool. But, I'm almost tempted to start working on MRpost videos just to show that your antipathy towards Linux is misplaced and that the world of docks is doing just fine on this side of the proprietary software fence. Frankly though, I don't have the time to prioritize something like that.

I have a laptop + dock at work. It works about 70-80% perfectly. The rest is plugging things in and out again and rebooting because something got f-ed up. It is an acceptable annoyance in the workplace, in my opinion. But I would NEVER use that for my home computer system. PCMasterRace for life!

i work in IT and my main computers have been laptops since 2005. i dont use a dock per say, but i do use external monitors, mice and keyboard. my main home computer is a hp omen gaming laptop and its connected to my 65 tv in the living room and i have a wireless xbox controller for gaming and a wireless keyboard/touchpad combo for typing and navigation. while i work in IT sometimes i am asked to build high end gaming pcs, the last high end one i built was close to $10,000 about 6 months ago and a bunch of low medium end stuff since then. also, i dont game a whole lot on my pcs lately, but when i do i smoke most of my friends pretty easily which pisses them off that me and my $1500 laptop can smash them and their $3000 liquid cooled systems that they probably didnt even build correctly. laptops will not last as long as a desktop, and replacing motherboards in them are way harder than a desktop, but i dont care that much. later today i will be throwing my computer in a back pack to go do work and play games at some one's house later today, my desktop would be just about impossible to drag around.

I am a 3d designer in the construction industry using Revit, inventor and autocad..... I work entirely on a laptop. Granted it's a very expensive high end laptop but it is still a laptop. Laptops might never be able to compare to high end desktops but they're more than capable for most workloads

I just bought a Dell D3100, and I hate to say that it's working great on my $400 HP laptop with a broken screen. I wasn't expecting that. I will get a better laptop eventually and probably not build a new desktop like I was planning. Thanks for the video! Update: You can probably get a 3rd monitor if you plug it into the HDMI port on the laptop. I can get 4 monitors and the original laptop screen working. I don't need that though.

Wow, this is great, I'm actually happy you did this. I have been doing this ever since I bought my laptop, an i5 with dual screen 4k dock so three screens, two for my office virtual desktop and one for zoom calls. I honestly cannot live without it now.

you can make your laptop MUCH cooler(or perform better) by undervolting the CPU and GPU. GPU undervolting does wonders honestly
