I find no problems with the screen font as I type the reply to this thread or read my email.
Fonts are pretty normal even on Word 2013. If I need larger fonts on the go I just use the Control & the plus minus keys on the Laptop.
Yep some Adobe lettering is pretty small but their PDF format as well as Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 5.6 message windows are OK.
The Toshiba has a 20 GB RAM + there is another 10 GB on the independant Display Card. Has a 1 TB hard disc.
And there are some three screen color tuning software including contrast, which helps me tune the Pentax K-5 LCD screen with the Laptop.
Photos are a pleasure to watch on a hi-res screen.

Where did you get it with 20GB Memory and 10GB Video card and for how much did you pay?

I guess I would like two monitors for one specific case: So I can switch one off, if it is not needed.

But just one wide screen is nice as well (I have a 21:9 screen, if you haven't done the math from my previous post), because color and image quality is the same across the screen and of course, you have no black borders if you need to view something very wide. I've read so much from people who are unable to get two screens to match in color temperature.

A wide screen is great for viewing Video or Panoramas, but
I often find a need for a taller screen for text or even Video time line production.
I used to have a Pivot Monitor and you would be surprised how often you would switch from horizontal to vertical mode.
So, for me, two 30" monitors currently works best.
When shorter and wider becomes the norm, I may be forced to use 4.
