How many screens you running?

I've got 2 monitors in addition to my laptop screen. Anyone working with more like some kinda Wall Street big brain?


Also heard about this thing called a Xebec that has flip out screens for your laptop to make it a tri-screen, but I haven't tried it yet.


How many?

My company provided those massive Samsung curved monitors, so I use one of those, but it seems like I have 5. It is too bigย

haha yeah idk what I would do with a screen that big.ย  To me, it's less about how big the screen is, and more about having multiple screens to separate things out.ย ย

yeah on the road or on plane rides, could be a game changer.ย  I'll have to read some reviews on it before I make the leap.ย  Of course I'm not traveling too much right now so I can't see the value just yet.

I have a video endpoint that I use as an extra monitor. It's honestly been the best thing working from home. Makes me feel professional.

It's a desk pro - Cisco device. Big screen with a camera on it. I use it for video calls, as a monitor, and as a whiteboard!

My ideal setup would be to have 2 external monitors + laptop screen.

Laptop in the middle on a riser.ย Monitor on the right, set up vertically. Monitor on the left, set up horizontally.

What's the lift of having one be vertical?ย  Haven't seen that before.

Is it bad that I feel comfortable with only one? I guess with time I might need more.

1 external monitor. Focus on one client at a time.ย

Don't think anyone is saying we're financial analysts.ย  I like having email on one, SF on another, maybe a deck on working on the third.ย  Just easier than minimizing and maximizing screens all the time if I need to look at 2 or 3 things while working on a task.
