Bought an ultrawide 34” and i love it. Way better than having 2 screens break up the screen.

I bought a Dell curved gaming monitor. I’m slowly phasing out my 12 year old Mac (which is on its last legs), but I’m having problems transferring data. I need to look into accessing the iCloud from a PC (new Lenovo-need it for programs that don’t work on Macs). But this monitor fits on my desk and still lets me move windows around. The multi monitor thing is something I don’t have room for. But look into a big gaming monitor that has the real estate you need, without all the cables, etc., that you’d need for a few smaller monitors.

Depends on your preferences and style of working. Sounds like you want two monitors in different directions (vertical/horizontal), so go for that, but get two new identical monitors with the smallest bezels possible. I do a lot of drafting and have 2x 27 inch monitors -- it works well for me. If you're considering a larger/curved monitor go check them out at a store first.

This week I started a listen through my entire record collection from front to back. I’ll be doing this on workdays when I am in my home office. Did it a few years ago. Collection has grown a lot since then. But I’m not doing comedy and spoken word this time. Too hard to work to those. I expect it to take 4-6 weeks at least. Depending on how many calls I have.
