Re: swapping monitors?
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.
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.
