Dual-Monitor Optimized Productivity

Historically most people couldn't justify the expense of a dual-monitor setup in spite of the productivity gains multiple screens afford. So most people were relegated to drooling over the possibility while watching movies like "Swordfish" (possibly the most eye popping multi-monitor setup ever) or the 2008 remake of "The Day The Earth Stood Still" which reflects not only the broad adoption of multi-display configurations, but also demonstrates currently available "next generation" display technologies like Microsoft's "Surface".

Today, even entry level PC's as well as nearly all laptops have graphics cards capable of multi-monitor support - so at Benchmark Reviews we decided to address the most important questions: "Will you really be more Productive?", "What do you need to know?", and "What will it cost?". Benchmark Reviews will answer all of these questions in-depth in this article on Using Dual-Monitors to Optimize Productivity.

Haven't seen the film so I just looked Swordfish up and I do have to agree, that is one amazing multi screen support system!

That said, I think I'll have to be content with two monitors. Two's a company, three's a crowd as they say and I think a third monitor would be a distraction. Personally, I prefer to use both monitors to concentrate on the same task.

Way back when we started with XP, I installed a second monitor at my wife's computer desk. No way did she want the second monitor, because it took up too much space. I told her that I was too busy to remove it, but that it would go on the next weekend.

When I went to remove it, she told me to leave it in place... because she now did her banking on one monitor, and e-mail on the other, etc., etc.

Now she's interested in a third monitor when we move to Win7!
