That's the point. ;)

It's so you can expand the desktop without adding GPU power. They're usually pretty basic, but it's very functional IMO.

Rotate it and view your legally purchased comics on it!

I see the specs say swivel -65/65. I am not fluent in math, but to rotate landscape/portrait wouldn't it need to be -90/90?

If I can't do that, then no deal.

edit: Swivel isn't the same as rotate. I confuse easily. Will keep checking and report back to the internet! :)

edit 2:
Orientation (Use this function if you upgrade with Ergonomics base)
Landscape Sets the display to landscape view
Portrait Sets the display to portrait mode
Landscape (flipped) Sets the display to upside down landscape mode
Portrait (flipped) Sets the display to upside down portrait mode

So if you get the Ergonomic base, then you easily change orientation.
