If you have a MacBook you can use Duet, it allows you to use an iPad as a second monitor.

The other option is as others have mentioned a docking station, you can get universal docking stations.

Thanks Gents, I got sorted now



Went with a Refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad Dock https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lenovo-Th...356e%7Ciid%3A1which runs both Windows and Mac (Black box under the monitor), which is fairly tidy looking. Just need to sort the mess of wires around the laptop now.

That looks like a neat and good value way of getting it working £30-ish is a bargain

I've been meaning to reply to this post since it started. Looks like you have your answer, and now has become a "let's see your setup thread".... Be rude not to share mine...
