Windows 7: How many people own more than one monitor?

25 Jun 2011   #31

W10 Pro desktop, W10 laptop, W10 laptop, W10 Pro tablet (all 64-bit)

I used to use a dual monitor setup back in the late 80's. One monitor was text only and the other was for graphics. I would be able to have a spreadsheet displayed on one with a graph of the data displayed on the other. That was high tech back then. LOL!

Presently, I have 5 monitors about the house but they are attached to separate computers (one is attached to a KVM and shared between 3 computers). I don't have room at any one workspace to be able to use more than 1 monitor at a time.

I think three 22"-24" monitors turned to portrait in eyefinity assuming you have a little more real estate would be off the hook perfect. Set up in a three monitor single post stand would give you a wicked clean look and usable space under the monitors and with it's gentle curve and portrait configuration it's really not that much space....but not for everyone.

I especially dig the system shown with all 5 in portrait, massive gaming advantages.
Here's my original single 26" LDC setup and it didn't suck but so much real estate wasted with the built in speakers which greatly sucked!

Now with the addition of the two 23" LED's and a new laptop riser I'm the model of least in my own mind ! lol
Looks really nice wish mine was that tidy

That's some serious multitasking.
