Is there a disadvantage to having two >MathKernel's run the two notebooks? Do you want the two notebooks to be totally independent of each other? Or would you prefer output from one to be easily seen by the other? If you have separate kernels, you have two separate Global contexts, one for each notebook. So, there isn't any simple way for one notebook to "talk" to the other' Are the two kernels running on the same machine? And if both are running on the same machine, does that machine have a single CPU with a single core? Answers to your questions depend on these factors and perhaps others I haven't thought of.
