Isn't it interesting how, not all that long ago, standard monitors
were 14-15" monitors? And a LARGE monitor was either 17" or, if you were
REALLY lucky, a 19"? Now, you can (if you have the bucks) buy and use at
least a 30" monitor. Having a 17" monitor is considered working on
something tiny. And many of us are using (and loving it) two 19-24"

I agree and do the same thing - my secondary monitor is my old 17"
display I used to use as a single display for my work - it was so

I got a 20" LCD for my primary monitor, and it has made a world of
difference. I can't believe I used to do all my work on the 17" tiny

I plan to replace the 17" CRT with another 20" LCD in the near future.
(I look forward to the increase in desk space!) I'm also considering
getting a 24" or larger for my primary screen, and to use my current 20"
as my secondary.
