I also rock the dual monitors, but I put one monitor vertical. I used to have one vertical monitor when I was in the Air Force all the time for e-mail. I find it to be a much more efficient way to sort, read, and find messages. I also like it for working on Excel spreadsheets. Left monitor is used for everything else like web surfing, taking notes, remote desktop, instant messaging, and music. I like having the light shining on the walls behind my monitors. Adds a subtle vignette. Laptop with docking station, IP phone, and gigabit switch to the right.
