I performed a quick check at Dell Small Business. It shows that you can get
a flat panel monitor stand that will rotate any compatible Dell monitor to
portrait mode or landscape mode and back again.

In my office, my widescreen Planar monitor is set to landscape while my Dell
monitor is set to portrait.

Hope this helps,

Will

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... I'm planning to look on Craig's list for one. -----But if anyone

as it's in good condition(!)...
---------------------

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 :-).
