I need to be in Windows to run other software required for the job, such as student system software. I only use Bootcamp, since Parallels is not as easily repairable when Windows has problems, as Windows will.
I consider to be necessary whatever is needed to do my job the "best" that it can be done. I ended up ordering the HP TouchSmart 610q today and I'll just use a USB to VGA adaptor. I can use the added ability of the HP to tilt back 60 degrees and then use the 610q's touch screen to run the computer while standing up. Using a mouse from a standing position is difficult on the wrist for a taller person.
You'll probably ask why I need to use the touchscreen when I have a smartboard. With the desktop extended instead of mirrored, Smart Notebook software can be on the smartboard for students to view, while the student system software for attendance, gradebook, etc., can be on the HP touchscreen for my use.
