two monitors is great. i keep the non essentials on one screen adn then whatever i'm actively working on on the main screen. when i do it with my windows pc, it means i don't have to ALT/Tab any time i need to look at two pages at once. its great.

i never thought i'd like it till i tried it, and now i feel like i'm lacking in ability without it.

^^^ same here.

i also have a server machine (basically my older computer, but with a couple 200GB hdd's) and sometimes on the secondary monitor i have VNC running so i can access the server directly. the server itself does not have a monitor connected, only power and ethernet.
