Does any one have any experience & opinion re. using a large high resolution single monitor vs using dual monitors with revit 2009, 2010?  I am used to using dual & am getting a new workstation.  In a practical sense is one really large hi res monitor able to comfortably display the same amount of info?  Cryingi actually want the monitors that Tom Cruise had in Minority Report)  I have revit 2010, not yet installed but understand it doesn't manage dual screens any better than 2009, so new views always have to be adjusted across the seam, not so great.

Our Drafting Supervisor has mentioned that the next upgrade our department will get will be larger monitors.  I have mentioned to him that it may be more beneficial to just get the same monitors again so that we can use dual monitors.  This has one main benefit.  With Revit you can benefit from having multiple windows open at the same time to see how your project develops as you add and modify things.

But have you tried doing this with windows tiled?  It really limits the workspace for the view you are trying to work in.  So my thoughts were to use dual monitors so as to work in a main view and have all of your other opened views shown on the other monitor.

At least, that's what I would do if I could.
