Most cheap 19" LCDs don't show any more information than last year's cheap 17" LCDs, though. I've not seen a cheapie that goes over 1280x1080. (By comparison, an iMac's 17" widescreen is 1440x900.) Yes, everything's a bit bigger, but that's the only advantage. That will, of course, change over time, as stuff gets even cheaper and better.
