    just out of curiosity
    why would someone need a multi-screen computer?

    what are the benefits?

    its one of those things where after I got 2 screens I wondered how I coped without it. Sometimes I get emails from Amazon where they are selling screens for dirt cheap (like £80) - pick yourself up another one and connect it.... give it a go

    I have one at home for my server, I can download/view logs and have statics all on screen (because I have two screens)
    At work I have 3 screens (much to the financial departments annoyance) I can view everything I need, I can compare codes and have an social sites I am monitoring open.

    Once you have multi screens you will just come up with ways to use them!
    If you can get them you should! I would go for having two screens, even I think 3 is a bit over kill.

    I LOVE 2 Screens!

    On my right screen I put iTunes, AIM, etc...
    On my left screen I put my web browser.

    When I'm gaming I have AIM and E-Mail on my right and the game on my left.

    You see it more w/ stock traders...those guys have to be prepared to make multiple buys or sells at any point.

    usually multi screens are used by professionals who need '' more '' space to work , it's useful for financial analyze , multi surveillance loads of things , imaginate you have to keep the eyes open always at '' online chat help '' and same time you have to edit a silly pic to attach it on some customers emails :) ... it's just far away easy with 2 even with 3 screens . Same useful things giving you virtual machines ....

    I think anymore than 2 screens can throw someone off.. Unless one is just for messaging and checking accounts, etc.. Two though is a must imo.. Then again I wouldn't hook up another mount rack for nothing, was a pain in the ass.

    The most I have ever used is 8 and that was for work. 1)Traffic In and Out 2)IP's 3)Virus and Security Alerts Page and so on. More than three is no use, they had some programs where you could "stretch" the screen and you could stack multiple monitors up to make a bigger monitor. Also some games have, like forza where you can hook up multiple monitors and they can use for different in game things like your side windows and things.
