@richard10250 , thank you for your submission. Would you mind please adding:
2. some photos of your gear to bring it all to life?

You can make a few dummy posts to get your post count over 5 in order to attach pictures. Or can link to images hosted elsewhere:

You could technically have 3 displays off the laptop 🙂
