So, I’ve been holding off on an Air for over a year anticipating first the keyboard fix and then the big refresh. In the meantime, I acquired what I thought would be the components of a great setup: two 27" Dell U2717D IPS monitors, swiveling monitor arms that mount to the desk, and an OWC Thunderbolt doc.
I thought I was being smart by preparing, but now I realize I might’ve gone off completely half cocked. I won’t really need to move the computer since I work from home now, and I hate working on just a laptop anyway–I feel like Shrek working on such a little machine and keyboard.
Does anyone have any idea how I can run the two monitors & speakers without keeping the Air plugged into power and ostensibly taxing the battery 24/7? Is taxing the battery in this manner just the price of doing business?
Background: I’m upgrading from a late 2012 27" iMac–first ten fusion drive and running just one external monitor at present.
