Jeremy Zawodney writes about how a bigger monitor increases productivity.

He certainly is right.

However, what about having 2 monitors. Or, what about 2 bigger monitors. Yes, it improves productivity.

There are a few reasons for this.

  1. You can keep track of more things at once
  2. You can look at more things at once when doing comparisons
  3. You have less down time when waiting for apps to open or for web pages to load. Just look at your other monitor.
  4. Less time is spent switching between windows, and keeping track of where your windows are.

That’s why I say I’ll never go back to working on only one monitor again. If you don’t have two monitors hooked up to your computer, you NEED to. It’s an amazing increase in productivity.

Also, if you think 2 is good, try four!
