    Dual Monitors has been a great asset for my research. My sons had set them up for me after each of them had been using dual monitors for some time.

    I often have many applications and websites up at the same time and it is helpful to have as much viewing as possible.

    Dual monitors are most useful when I work on my TimeLines of Liberty. Research on one monitor and collect and rewrite on the other.
