I got a Mac Mini because it takes up less space and does everything I need. I have 2 monitors running through it, 1 vertical, 1 horizontal.
what is point of one vertical one horizontal?
You can put multiple (at least 3 on a high res) docs next to one another on the horizontal one. The vertical one is used to read long docs, so you're not constantly pushing page down, or to keep several long blocks of text in view on top of one another. It is a modest advantage to 2 monitors set up horizontally, IMO.
This. On a widescreen monitor (and these days who doesn't have widescreen monitors) you can read a full page at about full size on a vertical monitor. It's really efficient for reading things, especially while writing, with your word processor open on the horizontal monitor.
