Apropos the monitors/LCD debate, a friend is getting a new monitor:

"445Xpro: .21 dot pitch, 1800x1440 NI at 80Hz, $1400 or so (including
shipping, which adds up for a 70lb item like this one).
It can also do 1600x1200 at 95Hz, or 1280x1024 at 114Hz.

I've heard people claim that they actually prefer 100 or 120
to 80 (and of course find 70 totally unacceptable). I don't
know if I believe that.

Yeah, prices actually seem to have dropped significantly in the last
couple months, even, particularly 21" and 19" monitors. You can get
the 19" version of the same thing for well under $1000."

Maybe the LCD threat is causing change.
