I need two monitors because I run two apps at the same time for music production. I hate switching between tabs all the time. Its annoying.

I made up my mind way before you posted. If you actually read my first post you'd see that I run two apps at the same time in rewire. So you suggesting to stick w/ a 24" was not that helpful. Thanks anyways buddy. If you don't have any constructive input then do me a favor and not post in my thread.

when you set windows up to use two (desktop) monitors, the mouse just slides over to the second. it's pretty cool.
