Fear my 17 inches

After some months of consideration, I finally splashed out and got myself an 'e-yama' LCD monitor. My trusty old Sony 17" is about 5 years old, and whilst it still has a pretty good picture, it can only display my preferred resolution (1280x1024) at 60Hz, which gives me too much flicker. Very annoying.

The screen came from a huge computer exhibition/market that is on in Utrecht each year. I only heard about it on Saturday, and headed there on Sunday. Sort of an impulse buy, but I had been thinking about it for some months beforehand. And so far it's very sweet. A much clearer picture than a CRT, and it actually handles most resolutions thrown at it, something that older LCDs couldnt deal with.

My desk seems a lot bigger now...
