I've been a laptop user for some years now (at least untill i get myself a kick a$$ gaming rig
). But, i have not found any use (until now) for the 'Extended Desktop' utilised in most laptops these days.
My laptop has an Intel 943GML mobile graphics display. I have it set up to output to my 43" plasma TV so I can watch my downloaded Movies & TV files.
It wasn't until the other day that i thought i'd experiment with the extended desktop feature & was pleasently supprised
I now have either Media Centre or PowerDVD open in full screen on my TV while using all other features on my laptop, totally wicked
