    Used to be I needed to reassemble the mini-ITX computer, unplug everything then plug them back in if I wanted to move it to my bed for use with my portable monitor. This $13.3 USD spent improved my quality of life in a major way:

    1. $5 for 3x 1.5m USB 2.0 extension cables -- I now have a 4.5m long USB cable running from across the room to my bed for my wired keyboard and wired mouse.

    2. $3.3 for the USB hub to connect the wired keyboard and wired mouse (at the bed end).

    3. $5 for 5m HDMI cable -- I now have a 5m long HDMI cable running from across the room to my bed for my portable monitor (and any projector that I want to project from the near the bed to the wall across the room.)

    Quality of life improvement -- 100X. Reminds me of the old days when miners would lay a long fuse line to blow up some TNT because that what it looks like to operate a portable display and input devices from 5m away!
