    I can imagine.. it must have been like going from a gameboy to a 50" big screen

    Games will look better as will movies or other media

    I popped an old PCI video card into my second machine and hooked up my old 15" to that. Now I have a 17" and 15" on the one machine and I have extended the display across both screens.

    Makes it easy to work with Photoshop or with two documents at once

    God I wish the prices on 21 inch would drop like the 19's did.I want to go right to a 21 but way too expensive.Nice 19 though Supa the trinitrons are the best.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    It's a 19. My other machine has a 17 and a 15 on it.

    Yes and no! Stuff is bigger, and like zipp said, the trinitrons are the best. The colour is awsome and the screen is bright and looks really good! Having said that however, my pissy 32MB GeForce2 can't handle game resolutions much past 800X600 so everything looks massive...like too big.

    But surfing the net is great and it's really good when working in photoshop or dreamweaver.

    BTW zipp - if i went to 21 i'd have no room on my desk. my next monitor will have to be LCD
