Multiple Monitors Increase Productivity



The New York Times has an article regarding “The Virtues of a Second Screen.” It might seem obvious, but the article works hard to establish the fact that increase screen real estate increases productivity.

I wonder how this might apply specifically to law students and attorneys. Just from my own experience, I know it would be very helpful to have multiple monitors, especially when doing research and writing. Thus, you could have Westlaw or Lexis open on one screen and your working document on another.

Do any of you have the luxury of a second monitor? If so, has it helped your productivity? Please leave a comment and let us know what your experience has been.

    I use two monitors in my inhouse gig. I use one to keep an eye on email, and the other for word. It also comes in very handy if I have a lot of cutting and pasting to do. Using 2 monitors is something every attorney should consider doing.

    Dave,

    I’m glad to hear that two monitors have been working for you. I’m hoping to get a second monitor pretty soon. I just have to catch one on sale. :)

    Thanks for the comment!

    I’ve been using dual monitor for about 9 months and I’m very satisfied with it. It makes my work more efficient and fun. Meaning: we can use one monitor to work on documents with the other one playing music video clip or even movie ! :lol:
