Welcome to the 21st Century
« on: May 12, 2010, 07:19:13 PM »

My CRT monitor finally died, so I picked up a new display today. Couldn't pull the trigger on an LED monitor, so I got an LCD and will be content to remain a generation behind.

I'm usually one generation behind when it comes to purchasing PCs, but I bought this when it first came out and paid $1100.

I needed something quick and ended up at Best Buy.

It's weird having this much space.

Before I had the following setup, with the monitor on a raised table behind a laptop on a smaller table in front:

----------------------
Monitor
1024x768
Browser, Text Editor, phone emulators
----------------------
Laptop
1280x800
Eclipse,Xcode,Shell/terminal,gimp,ftp,itunes,spreadsheet
----------------------

The upper display kind of sucked (resolution and color-wise) so I mainly worked on the laptop screen.  But now, with the same table setup, I have more space on top, so it'll be a pretty big adjustment with how I work.
----------------------
Monitor
1920x1080
Browser, Text Editor, phone emulators
probably everything else
----------------------
Laptop
1280x800
Shell/terminal
----------------------



sort of like this dude:

It must have taken that guy forever to get angles right to set that up.
