In a remote past, I had a 21 inch monitor and two PC's connected to it through a KVM switch.

The name of the first PC was "Workstation". The other one was called "Playstation". :-)

Never really had time to do anything with Playstation, but the name always put a smile on my face.

Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. As a new lawyer, I used dual monitors in document review quite effectively to review documents in a non-eyesight killing size on one screen, while having a coding window open on the other. Even in a non-doc review setting I find two monitors immensely helpful. In a normal day I keep my email/calendar open on one, and whatever I'm working on at the moment open on my primary monitor. I've also used them effectively in brief writing to cut and paste between documents, or review case law on one screen while dropping argument and quotes into a brief on another. In short, they don't work for everyone, but that doesn't make them useful for at least some of us.
