I agree with Jessica. Two monitors are the baseline for productive,
8-hour-a-day computer work. Especially in the Adobe world of palettes, pods,
and panels.

Also, I think that having a minimum amount of RAM (4 GB) is false economy.
In my opinion, 8 GB is baseline for a reasonable production setup. RAM is
very affordable, so there is little reason to settle for less.

Why would a tech writer need two monitors? In short, to view the thing
being documented and the document or notes or whatever I'm writing at the
same time.

Lets me work more productively. The two monitors can be placed to minimize
head turning, though I prefer head turning to alt-tabbing. Your preference
may be the other way, but that doesn't invalidate mine.

The developers I worked with at one time had three monitors: one to run the
software, one to view the analytics or the live log, and one to view the
code. Some of them wanted a 4th monitor, but management thought they would
be using that one to play World of Warcraft so the request was denied.
