    A 20" wide screen and a 22" widescreen.....it's pretty cool!

    That is all.

    I'd find it annoying to have 2 different size screens

    You should trade your keyboard in for a 3rd one.

    Have two 22's here, but I connect to work w/ a vpn using remote desktop. My system at work has multi-monitors, but when I use the vpn I can't spread my remote desktop across both monitors at home(I hope that made sense.) Someone's suggested split view or ultramon, but neither seemed to work.. Any suggestions?

    Nice. First thing I did when I landed this new job was demand 2 monitors. How the guy before me worked with only one baffles me. Now I have about 48" of total display. When my RAM gets in I think I will be set for a while.

    Congrats! I love my dual set up. Here at work I even got them to give the admin assistant duals. She friggin loves me now. At home I have dual wide screens. Makes things so much easier.

    I always love the question, "Why do you need two computers at the same desk?" SMACK !! Even after you explain they don't understand sometimes.

    I have 2 x 21" Sony Trinitron CRT monitors. I can't seem to bring myself to plug in the second one.

    Probably because the desk would collapse.

    Mine are mere 17" but I wouldn't want any bigger. I used to have just one 21" and it killed my eyes.

    I have one...I'd like to get a second, though I would have to move my printer rack somewhere else.

    I tried to do a dual setup with this and a dell 17" lcd and I couldn't get 1280x950 on the sony while having 1024x768 on the dell. The had to be the same...

    I love it. Good as any I have ever owned, and the battery actually last for a while.
