How I turned a laptop into a desktop computer 

How I turned an older laptop into a desktop computer.

I decided to get a monitor that I could plug into my laptop to make it easier to read and write for the dissertation that I have started. My idea was to buy a monitor and use it with my Macbook Air. I chose a 24 inch monitor as I wanted to be able to view two pages at the same time. The laptop connects using a standard HDMI cable and a HDMI to ‘lightening’ adapter or an HDMI to ‘lightening’ cable. I also tried the monitor with a 5 year old Dell Inspiron laptop and it worked pretty well, which got me thinking…

I added a wireless keyboard and mouse (which uses a USB dongle and Bluetooth) which saves having to use the laptop in front of the monitor and not being able to see the bottom of the screen.

So now I have my Dell laptop running Windows 10 and Office 365 with plenty of options for viewing.

I can still use the Macbook if I want but for now I am happy to leave the old Dell where it is!

I feel that I have got a useful and space saving desktop computer for the price of a monitor, keyboard and mouse. And if the older laptop dies I can either use another laptop or buy a basic desktop unit.

What do you think? Have you tried something similar?
