I use dual monitors, it is great. I put firefox on my 2nd monitor and my design work and all other software on my first monitor. Saves a bunch of time and helps with my workflow.

I would love to upgrade to a dual monitor. I guess it's great both for the looks and for making life easier. I have a friend who uses it and works really well with it. The only thing is that he is all the time programming!

I run a 22" Samsung as my main with a 17" LCD (offbrand) as my secondary, and I couldn't live without this kind of setup nowadays. Personally I find having all my messaging applications on the second monitor helps, as well as browser on one and notepad++ on another to code and update and see the changes easier then having to constantly min/max windows.
