Hi everyone,


I'm looking to set up a home office and need some suggestions for the best value for money equipment available, I realise this is likely to be subjective but any help would be gratefully received.


I would like to set up a home PC system, with dual screens, connected to keyboard, mouse, printer etc.. However I would like, if possible, to achieve this using a laptop that it can be used on the road as well as at the main office, when I need to be there. I assume that this will require some sort of router that both the input device (laptop) and output devices can be connected to. Does such a device exist? If so, what are the best devices to achieve this?


Further to this I'm going to buy a new laptop to connect to this system, something that will be used almost exclusively for work. So would like something that is: fast, reliable, transportable, and doesn't slow down quickly (as I have found that many do). Any suggestions would be brilliant.


Many thanks for your help.

If your printer is WiFi enabled, that can cut at least one cord.

A USB hub can solve all the problems except the dual monitors. If you are using the laptop screen as a monitor, then you can simply connect a second (most laptops have either HDMI or VGA monitor connections). Or does this need to be wireless?
