    Last year, I got a 17 inch lcd monitor and it was really good. Recently I thought it would be nice to get a 19 inch. I looked and the one I got was actually cheaper than the 17 I bought last year.[​IMG]

    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.
