...just kidding jeez...
I wish I had room on my cardboard box/desk for a second monitor
Anybody who has tried having multiple monitors knows how great it is. What is your favorite, or most creative, use of the dual monitor set up?
My personal favorite is playing a game on one, and then having some sort of TV show going on the other one... maybe South Park, Family
Guy? Something I don't need to focus on to hear a good joke.
I use them at work for comparing spreadsheets... but that's definitely not my favorite. Or comparing stats side by side for research... but this is all very vanilla.
It's become so easy and versatile I would love to know some of the best uses so that I can try them out.
I loveD it for video and photo editing. Throw all of my pallets on one screen and the image on the other. I also loved it for general computer activity. I would have one monitor has my apps open and the other one have IM windows open. That way I didn't have to switch back and forth between the two.
But I had to sell them. I didn't have enough room at school for both. So I bought myself a 20" wide screen. Still happy just for different reasons now... such as watching movies.
My 30" Dell and my 19" ViewSonic.
I really only need two monitors for CAD drafting. Its nice to be able to put the tool bars on one monitor and have the second monitor to utilize as your work space. I got a pretty good deal on a third monitor which is why I went a tad bit overboard on this configuration. The third monitor is used strictly as position for the start bar menu and Outlook.
Here's a pic of my desk:
