Multiple monitors… harder to concentrate?

My desktop is running across 3 monitors, and I really think that I can be more productive using all 3. The setup allows me to keep Netbeans open on one monitor, Chrome open on the second to see whether the code that I just typed looks like I want it to, and references on the third.

The problem is that it’s harder for me to get into a working mode with 3. I’ve found myself switching to my notebook more often recently. It just seems easier to concentrate with one little 13.3 inch screen instead of 3.

Not sure what the answer is, or whether there is one. But there is some irony in the fact that I was trying to work on some code and the idea of this post distracted me enough to come here and type it out.
