Re: 19" Monitor
The 22" will take about the same space, and give more productivity due to the higher resolution, size, and no split in between screens. Also, movies are shot natively in widescreen, so they will look better as well. 1280x1024 is a low resolution, which is why you are needing to use two monitors, while a single 22" 1680x1050 monitor will still display more than two 19" fullscreens.
