3200 X 1200? I suppose that's two monitors running at 1600 X 1200 resolution.

I have a 21" Viewsonic P815 monitor at home I've been using for several years now (it's set up at 1600 X 1200, expensive monitor to buy at the time but has been reliable all these years and has a very fast refresh rate). I simply can't work at anything much less than 1600 X 1200.

I have a 19" monitor at the office also set up at 1600 X 1200. I'm hoping I'll be able to get one of those new 24" Dell widescreen flat panel monitors with a new office system I'll be ordering soon. The 1920 X 1200 desktop could improve productivity a good bit more. If I can create room on the desk for it, I may keep the 19" monitor as well. CRT is still better for color handling.

My new Dell notebook for home was ordered with a WSXGA+ TFT screen (1680 X 1050 resolution). Works pretty well for a 15.4" widescreen. I could have ordered it with WUXGA resolution (1920 X 1200) but I felt the icons and type would be rendered just a bit too tiny to read comfortably. Might be do-able on one of those new Dell XPS 17" gaming notebooks though.

yessier, it's dual 17" 1600X1200 monitors, but since this post, someone gave me a 2.8ghz machine, so I swapped one of the monotirs to that, and using synergy (synergy2.sourceforge.net) i use one keyboard and one mouse across 2 computers, it's exactly like dual montior setup, but each monitor has a computer powering it.

I installed OSX86 (tiger 10.4) on one, and xp on the other and i can move the mouse cursor across both screens. (synergy even copies clipboard contents, but cannot move windows across monitors)
