My new monitor came today! While I've been lusting after it for a few months now, me being the cheapass that I am, I couldn't justify plonking down $649 plus taxes for a monitor - especially since it's an LCD panel and I'd heard horror stories about dead pixels etc etc ad nauseam.

Also, I had planned to go on a short vacation in October - that never happened - just ran out of time. November, again, no time. Plus I wasn't really keen on travelling very far, and didn't really have any destination - just basically wanted to get away from work for a few days.

So last weekend I decided to give up on going away for any vacation before Xmas, and take the money that I had mentally "spent" on travel and hotel room and buy the monitor I wanted. Bonus - the price at Amazon was $100 cheaper than anywhere else, and they had a 20$ coupon code for that weekend, plus no sales tax. So the $649 + tax monitor came to $560 total from Amazon.

It came today - and it's awfully nice. Currently I'm playing with it rotated 90 degrees in "portrait" mode, just for fun. It's a Samsung 204t 20.1 inch LCD, because that was the one I fell in love with - and 20 inches seems to be the minimum for 1600X1200 resolution - which I really wanted.

happy dance!
