    I have two monitors now

    It'll take some getting used to. At present, I think its main advantage is
    twice the eye strain.
    But everyone wants dual monitors, so it's really *good* and I *love* it. (I
    know I will, I know I will...)

    Dual monitor setup is great, I have most of my users setup that way, & most
    of them have gone home & duplicated it.

    I would be crippled trying to create presentations for training without
    2 monitors. Having the browser/application in one browser and the
    presentation in the other....

    I also use it when I am doing my time. One is the calendar, the other
    the time sheet/project application.

    I do a ton of remote-control and Citrix work, and having the extra room to
    look at some of extra windows without so much overlap is going to be nice, I
    think.

    My wife got a 19" flat panel monitor for Christmas. A lot of her work
    work is document comparison/manipulation. She was thrilled with it.

    I've been doing the dual monitor thing
    for a few of years now. Statistically
    there is a 20-30% productivity gain. The
    whole office will have them eventually I think. Everyone
    that I have set up thus far has no idea how
    they got along before they had two. I saw a detailed
    study of it on a site where they went from 2 monitors up
    to some ridiculous matrix of like 50 to see at what
    point the productivity increase stops...because eventually
    you get lost and can't find which screen the info is on you
    are looking for.
    I think two is optimal for most people but three can be handy
    on occasion. Beyond that you need a job like security or something.

    Re: I have two monitors now

    50! That would be somethin' to try to work with! I can already see how 3
    or even 4 could be practical for what I do. Our graphic designers all have
    two (recent development). Maybe it'll be the next thing for all staff here,
    too.

    I'm not looking forward to PHCEO's first glimpse of the new arrangement. He
    will of course have to have the same or better setup, although ... (okay,
    deep breath, don't get started...) there's no way he needs it.

    ('Nother deep breath, reminder that he helps us get a nice big budget....)
