My teenage daughter has a MacBook Pro M1 (2020) and we have had the screen replaced several times now, at great expense each time. Sadly it is now broken yet again ! The new plan is to use the laptop with an external 4G monitor that we already have and works well with it, and to buy an external keyboard and mouse. Since her bedroom is rather small I would like her to be able to use it with the screen/lid closed (perhaps with it rested on on it's side somehow, if that's possible?). Either wired/USB or Bluetooth keyboard & mouse.
She mainly uses it for school work and some digital photo/video editing.
What are the considerations and potential pitfalls for using the MacBook like this ?
