Aaron,

Hmm... you may have just intrigued me to try a 24" monitor. Now I just
have
> to justify it to the boss :-)

I picked up a 24" monitor for only $249 on a Black Friday sale last
fall,
and have it running in 1920 x 1200. Then I have next to it a 20" in
landscape mode, running 1200x1600. As John notes, portrait mode is
actually
very good for documents, PDFs, and code windows. You can get a lot of
height in 1600 pixels vertical.

I've been using multiple monitors for about a decade, and can't hate
when
I
have to work off a single monitor such as my laptop even though it also
is
1920x1200 so can pack a lot on the screen.

On the KVM note, for those that have a desktop machine AND a laptop
sitting
> right next to one another, there is a cool utility called Synergy
that

Another option is MaxiVista ( http://www.maxivista.com ) which can not
only
do the software based KVM like Synergy, but you can use the display(s)
on
the other PC as if additional monitors on the host computer.
