The Business Benefits Of A Big Monitor

I have an office in the home and the Apple display is vastly easier to move into the living room so I can work with my MacBook Pro laptop in my recliner with a nice view of the patio :-) If portability is needed than one 27" is much better than 2 20".

If you have limited space then you cannot go wrong and the prices have come down dramatically since I bought mine.
If you have the space then two screens can be preferable depending on what you require, and the cost for two is less than what I paid for one 4 yrs ago.

Now if you use the pivot function, you need more space on your desk than the screen itself (to be able to rotate it) and then you need the external speakers far apart (again to be able to rotate the screen easily).
So a pivoting big screen should have two sets of built in speakers (on the four sides) with an automatic switch between the the two pairs. This one does not exist yet.
For now, I use two screens, one landscape and one portrait and a separate pair of speakers.

Maybe a tablet that has HDMi-out and a USB port to connect a portable HDD. And, I don't know, some sort of physical keyboard+trackpad (or even bluetooth)...
(I'm waiting for the Pro, though)

I would have agreed wholeheartedly until I discovered how much I can do with my Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. No, it will never replace a workstation or even a full-time number cruncher's computer with multiple big displays, but business productivity comes in many forms. My tablet has more than enough computing power, and a large enough display, to handle word processing, form entry and not-too-big spreadsheets, making them adequate (with a decent keyboard) for most of the things executives, managers and salespeople do during the workday.
But I don't think tablets were ever intended as replacements for business-office computers anyway. Tablets are highly mobile devices that are designed to let people access and consume content wherever they are; while a keyboard-equipped tablet can also be used to produce content, that isn't their real purpose. (The Microsoft Surface and Surface Pro begin to blur the line, but I think of them and similar devices as "convertible ultrabooks" rather than pure tablets.)

So will report on the efficacy, when I get the HDMI cable.

I would prefer you look for a keyboard that allows you to turn off the caps lock...
