I love the multi-monitor setup. At the office I have my laptop (1900x1200) with a secondary monitor (1600x1200) plus my old laptop, which is now my 'spare' at 1600x1200. At home I haven't duplicated the multi-monitor setup just yet but one recent upgrade was to a 20" LCD that's also 1600x1200. The great thing about it is that it swivels so my normal orientation for it is actually 1200x1600. This is great for reading web pages and documentation and other things that tend to be formatted for length vs. width. I haven't tried this yet as I don't do iSeries work on my home PC but I imagine it'd look great for two 5250 sessions, one over the other. The LCD is http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?Edp No=1901416&CatId=0 and at the time it had a rebate to make the end price under $300. John A.

More than that, you eliminate the stands from the desktop. I currently use four LCD's, three primary ones in an angled corner arrangement and a fourth off to the side. All are directly attached to the wall using VESA mounts so there are not even the poles as in your example. They literally float above my desk, giving more room for papers and other stuff. I just don't understand why more programmers don't use a multi-monitor arrangement. I have over 7.5M pixels of desktop space I can see at once. -- This is the PC Technical Discussion for iSeries Users (PcTech) mailing list To post a message email: PcTech@xxxxxxxxxxxx To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/mailman/listinfo/pctech or email: PcTech-request@xxxxxxxxxxxx Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/pctech.
