Wow I admire you guys how you can work on those small screens (especially CRT)... :)

I sometimes have to remind myself not everyone can get super cheap computer hardware in various countries around the world.  Here, a 20" monitor will set you back between $79-$130 or so.  I picked up a 20" Samsung for $125, brand new a few weeks ago.  Next to those Samsungs, were 20" refurb (totally like new) Viewsonics for $79 each, all in boxes, with 1 year warranties.

Talk about cheap. Sheesh.. The land of disposable electronics!

I'm pretty happy with my 21'' LCD - but the price was a bit different... :-[

Oh, I can get good prices too -- but there's other factors involved, don't forget.  My (relatively) new 17" is a conventional CRT, and it's deep enough (that is, front to back) that anything bigger would be wobbling precariously over the front of my desk.

This forums gathers people from all around the world, not just from USA or Canada or some other financialy stable countries... I still have friends in Croatia and in other parts of former Yugoslavia. It's sad that there is still no chance for some of them to buy 17" monitor... it's still like a dream for some people, and I can understand that. I'm telling this because I came from there, and I know exactly what's the feeling... you could just dream about some things... nothing else...

That's why I know how to respect small things and people who are still unable to affort those things...

Sasha,

The world is changing...slowly but changing.

Maybe someday, people in all parts of the world will be able to share technology and commerce without hesitation.
