    Dual Screen's in Mellor 409 and 411 Labs.

      At present, the labs only have single screens and a lot of the time it is necessary to have multiple documents/windows open at once - for example a lab manual and virtual machine. Dual screens would be more much useful for productivity and comfort as we would be able view more than one document/window at any one time without having to keep flicking between different windows every five seconds! Elsewhere in the university rooms exist with dual-screen computers and the benefit of a second screen is definitely noticeable and appreciated! For those of us who use the labs on a regular basis, a second screen would make life and learning an awful lot easier!!!

    6:22pm on 27 Nov 18 This would make life so much easier. Juggling a VM instance, lab manuals and Chrome windows all on one screen is a nightmare!

    5:47pm on 10 Dec 18 Totally agree, sometimes when I want to do extra work, I have to use two computers just to do certain tasks.

    10:49pm on 9 Feb 19 Hi Guys, Managed to catch up with the Dean of the school today. Monitors have been purchased by the University, not sure when they will be installed. But hopefully it will be soon!
