    Up the irons
    I guess the displays are personal preference. I'd rather have one large 30" screen compared to two 24" screens.

    Two 30" screens, if that's possible. :D

    I've seen the two 30" setup. One of my roommates in college was the son of a big CEO and was spoiled. I drooled on them at night . . . ;)
