Wide-screen LCD versus conventional

  degssie 13:39 14 Dec 2006

I am not particularly games oriented so would there be any advantage going for a wide-screen LCD monitor rather than a conventional screen?

Not unless you watch widescreen DVDs.

Or, come to think of it, work on wide documents, or two docs together side by side.

...or use PowerPoint with the LH side showing slide thumbnails and the RH side showing taskpane with slide layouts;
Or a big Excel spreadsheet;
Or Word with document map on LH side and RH side showing taskpane with styles;
Or one program on the LH side, another on the RH side making it easier to copy and paste between them.

I guess it’s what you get used to. I’m all for widescreen now.

or play games. I love the widescreen.

Goto PC World or some hardware shop where monitors are on display and take a look.

I have a 24" DELL and won't look at a 4:3 EVER again! :-))
