Do you remember that old expression, "If I could only be in two places at once?" The idea is that you would be twice as productive if there were two of you.

If there were, you'd be able to drop the kids off at school while running an important meeting at work. You could take care of your aging parents while, at the same time, do chores like the laundry at home.

That concept has taken hold in offices around the country, where people have computers with two connected screens. (See photo above.) It helps you to multitask.

For instance, you can respond to emails on one screen while you're working on an Excel spreadsheet on the other screen. Or, if you're an interior decorator, you could create your layout on one screen and choose colors on the other screen. With two connected screens, you could then drag a color you like from one screen to the other, to see how it looks.

With Duet, you can take that increased productivity to your home office, whether you work for yourself, or if you just want to multitask. Why not take care of bills on one screen while arranging a family get-together on Facebook on the other screen?

You can think of numerous ways to multitask. You do it all the time now. With two screens you eliminate the hassle of toggling from one open program to another open program on just one computer screen.
