    i have 3 PCs. 1 for home, 1 for shop, and 1 that is somewhat a spare. i built all 3, and they have lots of horsepower.......after all, i am a car guy...ex-racer:big_smile:

    lots of hard drive storage, lots of ram....but i have 2 15 inch monitors. i am pretty much tired of them, but i want a flat panel monitor...not flat screen. those have been so pricey i have resisted getting one.

    HOWEVER: frys outpost now has a soyo 19inch flat panel with built in speakers for $169.99

    looks like i am about to move up in the PC world:smile2:

    who has flat panels, and what do you think about them?

    Phil,

    several years back I had the opertunity to up grade my system where I work. I got 17" monitors LCG type. Less room being taken up on the table top. At home, I have 19" ViewSonic, and Love it. I cant complain about the image that I have to look at.... go for it. It is worth the less than $200 price tag.... I even have one in the RV for doing photo work on the road.

    I'm on a Macintosh now at the cabin. We have an iMac here and an iMac at home, home is a flat screen and we love it.

    At work I'm on an old PC and I'd rather be driving a Macintosh.

    Two HP's, one new with 160 gig hard drive, gig of memory, 19" monitor, but that 's mainly the wife's. The one I use most of the time is a Dell Pentium that's 4 years old, but its getting cranky. Also have a 7 year old computer with 98 on it and one I don't know how old, it was given to us, with a Celeron processor. I'm about to put Linux on the one with 98 on it, as soon as I strip out the junk it has on it.

    laptop is a Dell XPS with a 17" monitor
    desktop is also a Dell XPS with a 20" monitor
    one more XPS laptop that the misses uses for work I think that one is 15"

    I like both of the home models. The screens are plasma flat screens and very clear. space wise fantastic

    My first computer was a 1998 IBM, W-95, 17" CRT, still in service for the grandkids when they come.
    I have a 2001 Dell, XP, 21" CRT.
    Wife has a 2006 15" Toshiba Laptop.
    Home network with a Linksys wireless/wired router, cable telephony modem.
    If I was getting a new one it would definitely have a large flat screen.
