Could having a second computer monitor save you time and money?

A second computer monitor could be a great investment, boosting productivity by 20-30% according to many studies. Here's why...

While some desktop setups are a little bit overkill, resembling NASA’s mission control rather than a place to process your invoices – a simple second monitor can be a big boost to your productivity, with minimal cost.

If your computer (or even your laptop) can handle a second screen, I can safely say it’s one of the best upgrades you can make to your office environment if you spend a large amount of time in front of a screen.

But don’t take our word for it, there have been dozens of studies over the last decade and a half, all claiming a second monitor can increase your productivity by 20% - 30%. Here's one from the New York Times. Or how about this white paper from Dell (ok they have a vested interest, but it's still a good read)?

We mostly use two screens too!

Keeping an eye on emails, having a background music playlist running, comparing data between documents – the simplicity of being able to glance between two windows without having to do anything saves a shocking amount of effort, and once you do get a second monitor, over time - you’ll convince yourself you can never go back.
