How Many Monitors Do You Use In Your Setup? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you about Google I/O, and about your favorite newly launched product/feature from that conference. While the new things Google comes up with are not life-changing for most of us, these popular products are sure to affect at least some aspect of our daily lives. So which was the best and most useful announcement for you?

Out of 261 votes in total, 4% voted for Google Play for Education as the best new product, 6% voted for Google Play Games, 9% chose the Google+ redesign and new features as the best update, 13% voted for Google Play Music All Access, 15% like the new Hangouts IM client the best, 20% voted for the stock Android Galaxy S4, and the favorite new Google product according to MakeUseOf readers is the newly designed Google Maps, with 28% of the votes. 5% voted for something else that wasn’t on the list.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Junil Maharjan, who won 150 reward points for this contribution!

This week’s poll question is: How Many Monitors Do You Use In Your Setup?

Want to make some extra MakeUseOf reward points? The most useful comment on the poll will be awarded 150 points!

If you’re an old timer here on MakeUseOf, you may remember this same question from 3 years ago. A lot has changed in these 3 years, and I feel a repeat is in order, to find out how and if your working habits changed with the advent of tablets and the rising popularity of laptops. I realize that many of you have more than one setup (work and home, for example), so when answering this poll, please use the setup you use most often during the day, or the one you like working on the the most. If you’re using a tablet as an extra monitor somehow, that counts!

Tell us in the comments all about your current or dream setup. Next week, we’ll find out how your habits have changed since 2010!

    Re your summary of the results of the “How many monitors” poll. Very interesting, but I have to point out that 36% is not a majority, as much as some of our politicians would like us to believe.

    Regards,

    Shev

      Hi Shev,

      What I meant is that it’s the answer that got the largest number of votes. I know the work “majority” can mean “over 50%”, but it does have other meanings.

      From Merriam-Webster dictionary:
      (c) the greater quantity or share

      That’s the meaning I used. And yes, I agree the word is often misused in politics. It’s annoying.

    I only put two because sometimes I hook my laptop up to my TV, or I use my TV for my Raspberry Pi. If I had a desktop, I’d probably have two monitors hooked up to it though.

    I had a 22″ and a 19″ hooked up to my PC until the 22″ died. Now I have the 19″ and a 17″ hooked up.

    Multiple monitors is overrated. I use one 27″ monitor, and have numerous tims in the past to make use of more. They just end up being useless when you have OSX notifications or learn how to switch apps quickly.

    Three Monitors, 1 laptop, monitor either side!
