Beautiful, they are, but that's a 100% premium over just buying the LCDs and two video cards! A little bit of duct tape and chewing gum and you'd be set.

Seriously, if you are going to pop for something like this, don't waste it on the 2,048 x 1,536. That's just not enough pixels more than you can do with a good ol' CRT. You get a 2,560 x 2,048 model and then you're talking some carpe pixels.

That's sweet! Go for the quad 19"! You could literally get *into* the Zen of programming that way.

You should come down to a trading floor sometime. Tri/quad-moniter setups are the norm, not the exception. I still can't imagine how you can visually keep track of all the data thats going on, with a hundred stocks showing on four different screens. *shrugs*

Guess thats why I'm a Systems person. Three moniters of webpages, IMs, emails, etc? Now that I can handle
