Default hate having to choose between a laptop and dual monitor setup

what would you do?

I found a hp spectre 4k laptop for deals
and also found a great dual monitor setup at the same time

its a fn tough choice.
I don't need either but I want both but only have enough cash for one

I'd do neither and buy a Macbook, iPhone and Apple Watch as the ultimate trio of goods.

All depends on your workload/use-case. If you're going to need to be mobile, then the laptop. If you'll be able to stay in the same place (at a desk), then desktop+dual monitors.
