[vcf-midatlantic] OT: One modern PC, two screens

Thanks for the info. Right now I use a 22" screen in portrait mode
(because the main things I do are email, writing, and browsing)
connected to the mobo's on-board VGA. Very low-frills. Looking to add a
second screen of similar size. Never had more than one screen.
The thought of a second screen came to me yesterday. I started working
on a portable computing "bushy tree" which some prominent people have
asked me to do for many years now. I made a spreadsheet to organize it.
The spreadsheet is wide :) and it's hard to see the whole thing even
when I put my screen into landscape mode. Had to zoom out to 70% at
which point it's hard to read.
My concern about two screens is the distraction factor. I already find
it difficult to concentrate on stuff. If there were twice the info in
front of me, then it probably wouldn't help!
Ian, where are these nearly free monitors? :) Cheapest I'm seeing on NJ
Craiglist are $50-$100.
