I'm actually in the market for a Viewsonic monitor that rotates between horizontal and vertical. No one seems to be selling the ones that rotate anymore...

That's what I'm using now! It's model VP2030b, with 1600 x 1200 resolution, and I can (although never do) rotate the monitor. This resolution is UXGA in the classic 4:3 aspect ratio (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monitor_resolution).

But before I part with it, I'd need a replacement, and what I want is a <better-than-1600> x <at-least-1200> monitor, which seems basically impossible to find at any price.

(I've been drooling over a colleagues ancient QXGA monitor for some time now, which is also a 4:3 ratio, with 2048 x 1536 resolution! But the monitors available today seem to be the "widescreen" format where the width is nicely bigger but the height is smaller -- not conducive to tiling multiple docs on a single screen and making the whole-page-view actually readable by my now-requiring-reading-glasses-eyes. And I don't want to go the multi-monitor route because I often am using multiple docs at a time, or an open app window and my doc authoring window at the same time, and swiveling my head from one to the other would give me whiplash!)

So, if anyone has a working monitor with <better-than-1600> x <at-least-1200> that they'd like to sell, perhaps we could manage a three-way monitor swap :-).
