My dream


I have a dream system in my head and it starts off with one of these.

That's right -- a 30" monitor. So if you're enjoying this blog, and you have spare cash, feel free to ship one of these my way.

[My wife's response to my wish to sit two feet away from 30" inches of technological glory? "You wouldn't sit that close to our TV, and that's just about the same size!" Ah, the unwashed masses. So innocent.]

I know you should never apply a calculator to another man's dreams, but I always thought one big monitor was more expensive than two, smaller monitors...

So for the same price you could get 13% more pixels by buying 2 of the 24 inch monitors ( 2407FPW ) for a total resolution of 3840x1200 (and get 1000:1 contrast, but only 0.270mm dot pitch). But if you figure in the need for an additional video card for the 2 monitors, your dream is actually not a bad idea in reality as well.

Good point -- especially that the 30" monitor would require a new video card anyway...
