    I'm gonna hijack the thread a bit and ask a Q, as I am currently in the building of a home office, complete with a future gaming PC, monitors and hopefully a TV.

    1) Did anyone stick the TV either on a specific wall stand or within the wall itself? I want to do it like that to create a business TV combo, where I can watch business news all day, especially while I work.

    2) Double monitors or a large, widescreen monitor? Which one is better? Monitor just for gaming - I prefer to use the laptop for work.

    In fact my powerstation combo will be a work laptop + a gaming laptop (or a desktop) + 1/2 monitors + a wall TV. That's also probably going to require an upgrade to the electrical installation in my separate room I guess.

    1. I tend to move equipment around, so monitors tend to be on top of desks and stands; also, I would consider a new OLED television a comparatively expensive and heavy piece of electronics, and would like a professional to wall mount it for me. Exception, when they introduce bezelless tiled screens you can wallpaper.

    2. All things being equal, large wide screen, hence popularity of twenty one to nine and thirty two to nine, which also doesn't need to take into account desk width; desk width would determine how many and what size monitors. Exception, third party multi monitor stand, or monitor arms attached to desk, but angled away.

    3. Seems unlikely that a modern television, plus two modern monitors, plus a default laptop require exceptional power draw; you could run the whole set up through an Uninterruptible Power Supply.

    1. a rotatable wall stand:



    There is a weight limit though. As far as I know anything larger than 65" isn't possible with the rotatable kind because they need two sticks not one to support.

    2. Use the TV for gaming.

    3. gaming laptop cost too much and expansion is difficult.

    Gentlemen, thank you for the answers.

    I've positioned myself for a gaming laptop because frankly I haven't had a desktop PC since 2008 - ever since then, it's only been gaming laptops. I'm quite comfortable with them and a solid build from the beginning, with maybe some RAM updates, is the way to go for me. Plus for the most part I used my laptop for work too. (2 in 1)

    As for the TV, thank you for the suggestions, I think I have to do some wall modifications to insert the wall stand into it.

    What about electrical upgrade? The electrical supply in the house annex is not the same as the one from the house, should 2 laptops + monitor + TV + other appliances (like a fridge) necessitate an upgrade?

    That depends on how much electricity you wires can handle. Typically, this'll be related to the amperage rating of your electrical breaker. Your amperage consumption will be typically listed on the power brick of your device. Otherwise, I believe the simple formula is Watts/Voltage=Amps.

    At least that's how it is in America, I don't know anything about how European stuff is wired.
