I use my laptop screen and an extra monitor to do my job and trade on a daily basis. Lately, it feels like I need more screen area to have my eyes on everything. Do I get more monitors? Horizontal or verticle orientation? How many monitors are too many?

It's torture if the two screens are not the same size. Unless you have one to the right of your laptop, and one to the left, 3 total. I only have 2, but can certainly see a need for 3!

The tricky part is mounting them. I use this. My monitor isn't "VESA", so I had to get these too.

Yeah, my laptop monitor has always had a better resolution than my external. About a week ago I decided to pull the trigger and purchased this monitor which has the same resolution. My world changed for the better :-)

Going to keep this setup for now as the larger screen size and better resolution already gives me more screen area, but I will probably look at getting a 2nd external soon.

I need three different monitors to work productively, lol :-). Whatever your set up is as long as you feel productive and comfortable with it, then, it should be fine.
