Hi there , I have a laptop - dell xps 13. It has a smaller than average screen and I need a much larger than normal screen for my work . It doesn't look like there is a port to plug in an additional screen . What do you suggest . I'd like to avoid purchasing another computer. Is there any way I can attach another screen here?

If it's a possible option, you could get an external thin LED monitor to connect as a primary or secondary display. The pros are that you would have the additional screen which would be easier on your eyes and to work with. The cons would that it wouldn't be directly part of the computer, so you'd have to plug it in every time you'd want to use it. What's your thoughts on this as a solution? I can find and price one for you if you'd like as well

Yeah easier in my eyes sounds good . The main reason though is a screen large enough to display the entire database a work with . What size do you recommend ? It doesn't look like there is a port to install anything in this laptop . Strange because it's so expensive

You do have several ports you can use on that model. It should have a VGA and HDMI ports, which both can be used. I'd recommend at least a 20 inch monitor or larger depending on what you're comfortable carrying with. Let me see what Dell recommends as well for this model

If you get this adapter, you can use the mini Display Port on the XPS --> CLICK HERE

As for monitors, I'd recommend these two. One is a 20" one and the other is 23"

1) 20" Monitor CLICK HERE

2) 23" Monitor CLICK HERE

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
