New monitor too...

[ #13188 ]

When I left ValueClick they let me buy the 21" Sony monitor I had there since the very early days for a very good price (for me, that is). Yesterday the picture starting shaking a bit like when a cell phone is ringing too close to the monitor. Or when you turn on a CRT right next to another. Except it doesn't stop after a second or two.

It was getting worse and worse through the morning today, to the point where I starting getting seasick. How uncool. I was planning to get a new monitor when Apple comes out with their next generation LCDs (and then get the 23" when it doesn't cost $2000).

I have a ~15" CRT, but it's tiny. With Expose it might be semi managable, but I doubt it.

So off to New Monitor Land. I can't make myself spring for a 20" Apple Display. $1300 is just too much. $2000 for the 23" ... Not sure it's *that* pretty. What's with the giant frame?

Dell is having 15% off some of their LCD until tomorrow. The 19" (~$635 + tax) looks nice.

Holidays suck. No delivery for anything this friday and I have much too much to do to not work anyway. Gah.
