Help with my screen/monitor setup!


My current setup is 2 old monitors, back from 2009, not even IPS. They are 2 LG w2353v and an Intuos. However I got a cintiq 13hd as a gift and now the doubts starts springing.

Since the cintiq is already a screen, a thought about selling the 2 old monitors and buying a new 23", with IPS and newer tech.
I thought that if I missed another screen, I could use my laptops 15", but not sure if that could be incorporated in a production workflow or if having only one big screen would be a problem.

Do you guys think it makes sense having a cintiq + 2 monitors? Like 1 for reference and 1 for mirroring the cintiq, so I can see larger? (bearing in mind the screens would be the old ones)

Or maybe I could use the 15" laptop for reference, buy a single 23" nice and new screen and mirror the cintiq the same way?

What do you guys think?

Trade-off would be 2 dates screens for 1 new IPS screen, but considering I also have a laptop, not sure what do to.
