I thought upgrading to a 22″ monitor was pretty indulgent, but hey - a girl puts in so many hours in front of the damn monitor, may as well make it a biggish one, right?
Well, I splurged on a second one. Yes, I now have twins - two ViewSonic VA2226w’s scored for less than $300 each. Maybe I’m a bit behind and and all the cool kids have dual monitors, but I’ve got to tell you it is simply Awesome!
My six year old surmised that I could now do twice the work. I said that I hoped I could do the same about of work twice as quickly. Well, not quite, but it has made such a huge difference! Think of every time you minimise an application or flick between tabs/applications. Need to reference something, while writing something else. Copying and pasting. It makes it so simple.
I think everyone is sick of hearing me rave about it. It’s not at all confusing. Just. Simply. Awesome.
If you can justify the indulgence, convince your boss…. whatever - just do it! I doubt you’d ever go back.
