    you mean it plugs into a usb port?
    then what about the video card, there is no usb port on video cards

    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.
