Monitors: The Bigger the Better?

October 20, 2006


Om Malik is asking the question, “is bigger (monitor) better?” It’s inspired by An Apple Sponsored study that suggests bigger is indeed better.

Joe upgraded to a 24″ Dell widescreen recently. He’s pushing hard for the rest of us to do the same. Daniel is always preaching about productivity gains from multiple monitors. Personally I get by on a Dell Trinitron 21″…someday the radiation will probably kill me, but until I start growing extra appendages this setup works just fine for me.

What do you like? One big monitor? Two monitors? How about you laptops users and mobile workers out there…are you frustrated by one small screen?
