    I'm using IDK.  Most everything I own is IDK.  Life is just too complicated.   :(

    My Toshiba Satellite is about 6 years old.  All I can say is, if I had my life to live over again I would have gotten a wide screen.  If I had my life to live over again I would have been born rich and gotten a lighter weight wide screen laptop, which I would by now have traded for an even lighter weight wide screen laptop. 

    I am confused by multiple panels.  I want them, but I have no idea how they are used.  How do you send different information to different screens?  I can't even cope with split screens on what I do have - I don't intentionally split the screen, it's something that happens accidentally and then I go nuts trying to remember how to unsplit it.

    Anyone know of a nice simple article or website that describes the use of split screens, especially how they are used in scientific arenas?

    So wait... you're only 6 years old?

    What do you mean "split screens?" are you referring to multiple monitors?

      Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS Full HD 22in LCD. It's amazing. I'd like to buy another as my graphics card can support it and it would have it's uses in video editing, but I can't afford it.

        I'm with Thompson. I sooooooo hate to replace something that still works. It seems like such a waste of money. But I junked the crt in favor of a 22inch LCD. Now I'm very happy that I did. So happy, that for my birthday this year I have decided to get the largest LCD monitor I can find. So far that has been a 28inch at Tiger Direct. Does anyone know of a larger flat screen monitor?

        I have a nice LCD for my main screen but use a CRT for my second.
        Don't worry about it.  If it's not good at stock, then it's not good.

            Why would I have to be 6 in order to live my life over again?  If I could go back in time, 6 years, I would have chosen a wide screen laptop.

            A split screen is a way to look at different parts of a document at the same time.  Each view can be scrolled separately, except when they're syncronized.  I guess.  I don't intentionally split the screen, I accidentally do it and then have to figure out how to make it stop.  (I finally learned how.)

            You don't believe in dual monitors because ...??

            For my laptop - Single 17" LCD
            Is that an external monitor?

              I'm guilty of hooking up my netbook to my 1280x1024 LCD and extending my Desktop.  Extended desktops are just so much better and easier to use...

              you said your laptop was 6 years old, and if you could live your life over again, you'd get a bigger screen. therefore implying your "life" was 6 years long.  :P

              that's application specific, though, and really just changes the view of the document- properly, it's called splitting the window, not really the screen. A "Split screen" implies showing two desktops simultaneously on a single screen by splitting the physical screen in half and showing one on each half.

              You bet, if you have two monitors you can do all sorts of neat stuff you couldn't do otherwise, like watch DVDs or videos on one monitor and keep working in another.

              I don't believe in dual monitors.

              I'm pretty sure they exist. Or did you mean, you don't believe in using dual monitors? In which case the question is... why?

              Actually, if I had a 24" monitor, I think I might no longer see much need for dual monitors.  I've never used a monitor that large but I would think that size screen has enough space to have two windows open side-by-side and achieve somewhat the same advantage as two smaller monitors, especially if those two monitors are 17".
