Chartplotter VS Computer

I currently have a 5 year old gateway with a flat screen display on the nav station using Nobeltec software for only in Puget Sound. I am looking to continue with Nobeltec for World coverage charts but would like to mount a secondary display in the cockpit but not looking to spend $3,000 for a waterproof high end display. The new computer alone is $2,000 for a Access FL Marine Computer from AR Engeering. Can''t decide if I should go with the computer and Nobeltec or a Charplotter with two displays. Anyone that has pondered this question and come up with a solution would be helpful.
Thanks
Hugh
