post 368 ~ which monitor?



post 368 ~ which monitor?… since the mortgage pay-off also overpaid my DELL account by $300, i now have some money to get a DELL product… i’m leaning towards one of the following monitors… but which?

  • DELL 2007WFP 20.1-inch Widescreen Flat Panel LCD Monitor ~ $367… max 1680 x 1050, adjustable to 1280 x 800.
  • DELL 2007FP 20.1-inch Flat Panel LCD Monitor ~ $416… max 1600 x 1200, adjustable to 1280 x 1024.

note that either one will be the secondary monitor (extended desktop) to my primary DELL 15-inch laptop (1280 x 800)… all other features are pretty much identical… i’m leaning towards the WIDE version, but in terms of desktop space, i’d be losing about 2 inches height, most noticeably in full 1280 x 1024 wallpapers… so while DVD, AVI, and other movies would look great, i’d lose work area for apps like photoshop or ms word… any recommendations?
