Single 21" but need a 2nd one, could be smaller but definitely need another one. They won't get me a 2nd one because then everyone would want one and they can't.... oh never mind.

I've been using dual 21" WS monitors for years, but I hear that my new setup is single 24" WS... Won't really know until I get there (tranferring to another group internally).

Dual 27" wide screens, with dual 21" wide screens out side those for email, tool palettes, etc.

At home ;
Twin 27" and twin 24" portrait out the sides.
... sometimes I'd like a GPS on the mouse cursor :)

In town ;
A 24" and a 21" plus Wanda (17" lappy)


Should be good when I learn to type properly :)

2x21 screens (not wide)  They've been trying to take them away and give me a larger screen, but I like the setup as it is
Thanks for explaining the word "many" to me, it means a lot.

22" CRT and 23" WS, used to have an additional 15" LCD, but the new video card requires some fancy displayport adapter to run more than 2 monitors.
at home, I'm running a 22" CRT and a 19" CRT
