Is it wrong?


Is it wrong to express devotion to a monitor?

Because right now, I am seriously in love.

My computer is 2 years old, and came with a 19 inch monitor.  I wasn’t unhappy with it, but I kept feeling like I could use even MORE real estate.  I contemplated a 2nd 19 inch monitor to match.  And nearly bought one several times, though I wonder now how I thought I was going to connect it?

But then.  Then, I became the owner of a 24 inch iMac at the shop,  and promptly decided that what I really needed at home was a 24 inch monitor.

Last night at Best Buy I almost bought one, it was an HP, looked like a return item that was about $150 less than full price.  I couldn’t quite justify it, though, and we went about the rest of our shopping.

Part of our excursion included a trip to Sam’s Club, where they had this baby.

It is 26 inches. TWENTY SIX INCHES.

And was the same price as the HP I almost bought.

So if it’s wrong to be in love with a monitor, I don’t want to know about it, because my Vizio monitor and I are a very happy together today.

    WOW 26 inches! That’s huge!! I thought my new 22″ one was big (well it is bigger than the 15″ I had before), but wow…that’s really cool.

    That is so cool! I didn’t know they made affordable ones that big. Sure would be nicer than the laptop for watching the quilting videos! Hmmmmm……

    Not, not wrong at all. I squawked when DH insisted I needed a larger monitor for my desktop and we just bought that same one from Sam’s. I’ve only used it about a week but already can’t imagine not having it. Honestly though . . I hope they don’t continue making them larger. 🙂

    8>) It’s beautiful.

    The nice thing about the new LCD monitors is that they’re lighter and take up significantly less space than the CRT versions.

    You should have seen my reaction when Collin hooked the computer up to our 42″ HDTV! I was over the moon! Wouldn’t you know it? Scott had to have the t.v. back! ARGH!
