Laptop/monitor Vesa

I’m currently running a 2015 iMac with a 27” Dell Ultrafine. I ordered a new 14” MBP and I’m thinking I’m not going to be able to handle the iMac performance anymore. I’d like to put both the Dell monitor and a laptop tray on a dual vesa mount to get everything up and off the desk.

Anyone have any setups they recommend?

I used this combination in the past, and it worked well. It gave me back a lot of desk space, and raised the laptop screen to the height of the monitor.

I had the same idea came to mind today. I have actually dual monitors, one of them is an old Dell 28inch, which is not retina, so I was thinking of retiring it and use the Mac’s display directly.

Thanks! Really helpful

An added benefit of having your Macbook screen always on is that you can use it in combination with Lunar, so that it can auto-adjust brightness/temperature levels of the external display.

That’s how I use mine on the office.

I’ve done this recently!!

Check the weight of your monitor to choose the VESA mount. Mine is from ErGear and I do like it. I bought the laptop attachment for the VESA part separately.


Love it! I bought a VESA mount that will work exactly like this: monitor on one side, laptop on the other. I also have the same Anker MagSafe dock :wink:
