There are many people who actually need at least two monitors to work with properly. Even though there are some workstations that just go over the top, this neat home office was designed by a high school student at his own expense and just goes to show what's possible, if you put your mind to it.
This home office belongs to Jason Rayne, a 17-year old high school student. Aside from getting one monitor for Christmas, everything else was paid for by himself, which is also kind of amazing.
Jason says that his PC has a 2GB Radeon video card, so he had just enough ports for 4 monitors. He also does a lot of graphic and motion design, as well as video edition, making a multi-monitor setup a must. Jason says that he uses each monitor to its full potential, using Dreamweaver to After Effects. The monitors are spaced out in a curve, so when one demands more attention, he just swivels it towards him, which equates with no neck strain. He uses 3 24-inch monitors and a 19-inch monitor on an IKEA Galant desk.
Although multi-monitor setups tend to be in the realm of PC computing and gaming setups, it's possible to plug more than one monitor into your MacBook Pro! With the costs of computer monitors coming down significantly over the last few years, if you want to try this out, you should have no trouble plugging in at least two monitors into your graphics card.
