Re: Where Do Displays Go From Here?

In Where Do Displays Go From Here? James R. Stoup asks about our first and current computer monitors. My first monitor was a 9 inch amber CGA screen, 80×25 characters of text on an IBM Portable (30 [thirty] pounds) PC. My current machine is a 15 inch Powerbook screen with an external 19 inch LCD.

I can’t imagine getting a screen much larger, although if I had another external LCD I could easily put it to the left of my machine for a total of three screens. Until I do that, I won’t know for sure if I really could use a third screen. The second screen really is a necessity, especially in Photoshop, or when I’m designing a web site.
