Krishna M. Sadasivam offers a rebuttal to my theory that a single, small, display is better:
A dual display eliminates the need for me to shuffle back and forth between apps, thereby improving my productivity.
The interesting thing for me in catching up with the responses to this post, is that most people seem to have focused on my loathing of dual displays. In fact I have hated dual displays for years and my post actually was talking about me moving away from large displays…
Either way Sadasivam’s response is pretty typical to what I have been hearing: “I am a design or a creative professional and need a large display.” Yes, I agree: Adobe’s software is crap to use on a small display. The question in my mind though is whether a large display is necessary and even beneficial outside of a small niche group.
