It should be noted that the larger the screen the longer the distance to travel from one corner to the other and therefore the longer the drawing time. So larger screens not altogether a benefit. Faster times can be achieved by reducing the size of the AutoCAD window, or by zooming to a fraction of the screen (eg. zoom 0.5x).

Faster computers and larger monitors save time, but only when there is a great deal of interaction between the operator and the machine. To really save time and increase productivity need to get the computer to do the work, and a slow computer may be adequate for such purpose. If it takes a person 2 minutes to enter data, and the computer 1 second to respond, it does not make any perceptible difference if get a computer twice as fast to complete its task in 0.5 seconds. Its the 2 minutes of human interaction with the machine that needs to be reduced: and that is likely to become a political issue. There has to be some acceptable need to reduce the production time before effort gets applied to do so. After all what are you going to do with the free time if just reduce production time just because you can.
