OK. I'm convinced. As soon as I finish my office renovations, I'm buying more monitors. I'm blaming you people.

Hi there

not wishing to be facetious but you might as well ask why do people use a different plate for each course of their meal.

A very typical instance is in Graphics . photo editing of LARGE PROFESSIONAL quality prints -- for example photoshop can use many layers -- you might want to separate layers on to different monitors for different processing before merging into the final print, or you might want to process different documents simultaneously etc etc.

Writing a book with illustrations -- you want the text on one monitor while creating the illustrations on another --etc etc.

Honestly I can think of ZILLIONS of uses for having multiple monitors.

cheers
