After being home and using my parent’s 17″ flat panel monitor I have come to realize how useful a high resolution is. More screen real estate does equal more productivity.
The more you can fit on the screen the more you can see at once and the more you can see at once the less clicking and searching you have to do. Little timesavers like that add up big in the end.
So what’s my point? Well, it would be great to have a new computer with a video card that supported dual monitors so that I could use two 17″ LCDs (or CRTs) to do my work. Hey, I can dream can’t I?
