    Do you have internet on one, mail or media on the other?

    Does one screen end up getting used more than the other?

    one screen gets used more than the other for sure... but sometimes its nice to have the second screen for things that are actively updated.

    I throw email/im/music/movie on one, then the other two get web/eclipse/visual_studio/etc.

    I usually have the left for my main, and right for Outlook. Messenging would go under Outlook if I was using it.

    Well I read left to right, so that's my excuse why my main would be on the left.

    right now everything is on my primary 22". Only open up the laptop when I want to compare something (I can't see the damn TV over the laptop at my desk if I have it open all the time)
