Why Not Go Vertical With Dual Monitors?

Why Not Go Vertical With Dual Monitors?

Think outside the box. Well, ok... computer monitors in any orientation are still going to be boxy, but why not try and stack your side-by-sides instead?

There's a lot of talk about whether using dual monitors is really better and more productive than using just one. But if you're sticking with a double-screen setup, chances are that it's a horizontal workspace.

We think it might be time to change it up. Now, this is not a researched opinion or one with any scientific basis—it's just based on the fact that we love to change it up once in awhile and we think this looks pretty cool! Why not give it a try and see if the stacked monitor setup does anything for you?

You could invest in a serious mount like the one pictured above the jump from ATDEC, or try your hands at this much cheaper, less sleeker DIY version we found over at Lifehacker (pictured directly above).
