I like the vertical screens. Where do you find monitors and display drivers that can do that?

(I remember a phase where screens were pivotable, but I haven't seen a vertical screen for years now before your post)

Those are Dells which pivot. Most display drivers should handle it (XP & 7 both handle)

I sure hope so, living on the side of a cliff there is always the worry that the whole place might slide down.

Mine spin. I use 3 each way. I use an NVIDIA Quad 450 Everything from Best Buy.

It has nice screens, but ergonomically it is a disaster. If you regularly sit in front of those screens, you will soon become Quasimodo.

For me it is quite important that I am not sitting too close to my screens. Minimum distance required between me and the screens is 2 feet. Use a large table and a comfortable chair which supports my back.

I sit on a high stool with perfect posture for my back - have actually done research on back, spine injury and disc degeneration. So, I respectfully disagree.

Is this not a way better response than using lots of 4 letter words

Cannot compete with the many screens of ZTR. Currently just have two large screens sitting on a desk. The screens are about 1.5 feet behind my keyboard. I do not want to be too close to those screens.
