Spend a little extra on a great monitor

Office ergonomics are a big deal.  A comfortable, clean setting really ramps up productivity.

The single best place to spend money is on a great monitor.  You spend 10 hours a day looking at it – get something good.  You can get a great monitor for under $300.  $1 a day is worth it for less back pain, eye strain, and more workspace. I just bought a Dell SP2208WFP monitor.  Looks great with my M1330 laptop.

It makes my life a little easier – and a lot less cluttered.  With the really high resolution you can see multiple programs without flipping between them.  Better than that, it has a webcam and USB hub built in, so all the extra wires on my desk just went away. Feeling very clean and organized right now.

Treat yourself to a clean, focused workspace.

    Great advice. Better yet, get TWO monitors and spread your desktop across both of them. I’ve done this at the office and at home and find it to be highly productive, and enjoyable. Well worth the extra investment.
