In the era of high-resolution monitors and VMware, I have no use for
two displays.

I rarely even have a use for the full width of my 1650x1050 display
except on the rare occasions when I need to look at two or more
windows at a time. 17 inches is way too wide for writing or editing a
single document, and I can only look at one document at a time.

In the past I had shoulder problems from ergonomically unsound work
environments, and having to look sideways all the time doesn't seem
like a good idea to me.
