I rarely even have a use for the full width of my 1650x1050 display

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.

Doesn't have to be sideways. On the Mac, at least, you can have up-and-down monitors.

I've had several co-workers and clients who had neck problems, and put their external monitor on a shelf above their built-in laptop display.
