    Small monitors 

    And here’s the result of the small monitor experiment: http://brooksreview.net/2011/09/smaller-not-better/
    I find the result a bit underwhelming (it all seems to add up to having a nice display to show off at work).

    Here’s a thought/experiment: http://brooksreview.net/2011/09/meticulous/
    Any opinions?

      I second the notion that having dual-display is useless and non-productive in any way. I have seen some people use it and half the time they do not use their second screen. It just sits there empty while everything else is done on the primary screen. Hence I always ask what is the point of having it.
      As for the screen size I would say that it does not affect the productivity of a persom. I have used a desktop computer with a large monitor all my life. Then in the 10th grade I got a notebook which had a screen that was more than two times smaller. I was still very efficient in my writings and the fact that i needed to concentrate on the smaller objects just gave me extra focus in my studies. So from this point of view I would say that efficiency behind a computer does not depend on the size of your screen. I believe enormous screens would only distract the person because there is too much to take in at once and the flow of concentration is not distributed equally.
