What's your main computer's screen resolution?
« on: Fri, 03 April 2009, 17:42:16 »
Mine's 1400x1050. (On a 12.1" screen, and I wish it were more like 2048x1536. Seriously.)

1024x768 on a 12" LCD. I'm totally with bhtooefr here, I want 2048x1536. It would be nice to have paperlike resolution.

If I still had wifi in my bedroom, my resolution would be 1024x768 + 1600x1200, the 1600x1200 being on a 21" Sony CRT.

Well, if I had an EXTERNAL monitor of my choice, it'd be an IBM T221.

22.2" 3840x2400.

But they're almost as expensive on the used market as my car, and my laptop can't drive one. (No DVI, not even on the dock connector. On a high-end ultraportable made in 2007. The bastards. :mad:)

The X61 is better. :D

(Until you try to make it a Hackintosh. :( IIRC, the sound card in the X60 is fully supported, as opposed to speaker output (no input, no headphone output) only on the X61.)

I like to think monitors are like keyboards, desks, and chairs? The operating lifetime of a good monitor will span 2 or 3 major computer upgrades.

I think part of it has to do with the prices dropping for monitors.

Back when I bought my last 19" Samsung, I had to give $548 for it, which seemed like a huge amount at the time.  Now, I can get a much bigger monitor for less than that.  There's nothing wrong with using a 19", though.  I still use my 19" on another machine and it works perfectly, and it's far too good of a monitor to just give it up.

Ditto.  Mine's a current gen aluminum MacBook (2.0Ghz C2D, 4gb ram, 500gb hdd).  Didn't want the backlit keyboard so went for the lower end model and upgraded ram and hdd.

BTW, the new white MacBooks are a great value (with the same upgraded graphics and ability to run 4gb ram like the alum's.  (although now with the mini's finally being upgraded, they are again the best Mac value)

What depresses me is that I'd now have to spend $550 for a monitor as good as the one I spent 300 on a year and a half ago.  Either that, or try to find another old high-end 21" Trinitron.
