I’m a big fan of dual computer displays and can’t imagine functioning at my desk without them.

When I’m on the road and want extended display space, it’s just not practical to carry a second screen around, unless that screen is an iPad.

Mac users have long been able to tether their iPads to their Macbooks, but now Windows users can do the same thing using an app called Duet Display.

By loading the app on your laptop or desktop and iPad, you can easily use your iPad as an extension to your computer.
