    I like the mouse dangling over the side of the bed…

    still got my W98se software…but Fedora16 runs hotter than anything MS or Apple can come up with! still: what is so important you do it in bed, and it isn’t sleep or sex?

    A computer has NO busines being in bed, anyway. Laptop or otherwise!

    Yes, actually! While LCDs have improved (IPS panels, OLED on the horizon), they still can’t match the sharpness, accurate color rendition, infinite color gamut, ability to view the screen from any angle without having to hit the “sweet spot” for undistorted image, or response time of a quality CRT. I’ve got a color-calibrated 21" monitor (it’’s a svelte 24" cube with 1600×1200 resolution). Although I did upgrade the computer over the years. 16GB RAM, i7 CPU @4.0 GHz now, versus 2 MB RAM, 80486 @ 50 MHz.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention: you can use the top of the CRT monitor as a bagel warmer. I’d like to see you try balancing a bagel on top of one of those LCD monitors!

    LCD displays are inherently perfectly sharp and have a geometrically undistorted image. Gamut in LCDs is usually inferior to CRTs, but some LCDs are superior if designed properly (wikipedia on gamut). The number of different colors in a CRT display is limited only by the video card, whereas LCDs are limited both by the video card and their internal drivers. LCDs do have brightness falloff and color distortion if you move too far off axis, which is a problem in applications where accurate color is critical. High quality, high resolution CRTs are big and therefor very heavy: about 100 pounds.

    masterkrain: I am using one now, and have two spares. Why should I waste money just to have the “latest thing” which will be “obsolete” in a few months?

    Yes, I had a large screen CRT monitor, but it took up way too much room on my desk. The color, defintion and clarity were great but sometimes you just have to change out.

    Rose wanted to ‘monitor’ Jimbo’s reaction to the situation on the computer!

    When you get the urge to work on that book you are writing, yet you want to stay in your warm and comfortable bed. Ah yes, I remember longing for a laptop computer. That was just last year. Way to go Rose!

    i bought the cheapest laptop i could find and it covers all my humble needs. i admit bluetooth and a built in web cam would have ben a nice convenience. but i still dot need ether often enough to want to upgrade. sometimes more is not necessary.

    I’ve got an old large moniter also. But it is now thank goodness regulated to backup. The LCD’s break down a whole lot faster than the monster CRT’s. Am on my 3rd LCD in 3 yrs.
