As of yesterday, that honor goes to this monster:

Of course, you can't get it for anywhere near $489 smile  An incredible deal for the 2005.

Man, I'm so close to pulling the trigger on this sucker.  I mean, I've got enough room on my credit cards to afford this and the plane ticket to E3...

I really, really want this thing.  A Radeon 9800 Pro will do the widescreen resolutions, right?

My laptop Radeon 9600 runs at 1280x800 resolution (widescreen laptop) without any issues, so I don't see why you'd have any problems with a more powerful card.

Shipping's usually free.  Though the monthly payment deal charges around 19% interest.

Ok looks like this deal died, but I have a few general questions about these new fangled LCD monitors.
1. Every sony monitor i look at looks astounding, I mean jaw dropping vibrant, the monitor looks like precious glass, the things just look amazing. Are they as good as or better than Dell?
2. Are prices on 19-21 inchers likely to drop appreciably from now until May.
3. Will a 20inch LCD be more cost efficient to move or ship to LA from DC than my 19inch CRT?

Rage, you won't regret switching from that big bulky CRT monitor over to a sweet lightweight LCD monitor.
Sometimes I have to leave my laptop (17" LCD widescreen gateway) and use a CRT monitor and it feels like my eyes are starting to hurt! It's not that bad but you definitely notice the difference.

I don't know if Sony would be better than Dell, or any other make for that matter. Is a Sony VCR better than a Panasonic VCR with the same features, just because it costs $50 more? Probably not.
Two important things you can look at for your LCD monitor are response time (25ms or less) and if it has any dead pixels. Double check to make sure it doesn't have any. When I got my gateway shipped I told them I would request a refund if it had even one single dead pixel so they better double and even triple check it before it leaves China to me. When you clean them you have to be gentle also I used a screen wipe and pressed too hard and knocked out a pixel. Every time you look at your screen your eyes go right to that tiny little black dot - the dead pixel. Very annoying. Luckily I was able to rub it back into place gently.

I doubt LCDs will be going down in price by May, though you never know. You might see a deal, like the one posted here, though. Sometimes you can also check the sunday's papers and they have deals on them, even if it's with a mail-in rebate.
Check Walmart as well, they often have computer monitors (at least the one by me) on clearance. They had a 17" LCD for something like $198 over here - no box or anything but it looked great. If I wasn't on a 17" LCD laptop I probably would have gotten it.

And your last question, it would be much easier (and cheaper) to ship a LCD monitor than that huge CRT monitor. My entire laptop (17" lcd included along with the desktop p4 3.4ghz processor) weights maybe, 10 pounds. The 17" widescreen looks like it weighs about 3 or 4 pounds. They're generally very light and portable. I remember I used to have to transport my desktop computer (with a 19" CRT monitor) back and forth from my parents houses and it was a real hassle, especially the monitor. The monitor must have weighed 40-50 pounds. Actually I don't know what it weighed but whatever it was it was a workout getting it up and down the stairs.
One of the reasons why I got a laptop, everything built into one piece and easy on the go.

Speaking of eyes hurting, I'm a grad student working on my MFA in Creative Writing so I spend a lot of time in front of my computer working on text documents.   I currently have a 19" Optiquest Q95 montior and usually after a few hours my eyes are blurry to the point where I have to squint to see the screen clearly (I also wear glasses and have sort of mediocre lighting conditions).

So I've been thinking of investing in a good LCD monitor (and what better excuse to drop a few hundred on a good one than my health?) and I was wondering if LCD's are easier on the eyes, especially for text.  Anyone know anything about this?  PM me if you can.  TIA.
