Just curious as to what the most common monitor size is.

Oops! Forgot to include mine. Due to my eye problems, I use a 32" LCD TV as a monitor

I voted 19" as I use a 19" LCD on my main PC and have several 17" laptops. I actually prefer the lappies view over the larger monitor.
But I probably sit to close to any of them at times.

I answered 24in or bigger cause you didn't say if the monitor has to be attached to the computer as is the case with the laptop I have. I run a cable from the laptop to my HD T.V. and use that as a monitor.

Currently using a 22" widescreen, but my wife told me if I was a good boy and finished the kitchen and living room renovations I can get my dream screen. I don't think she has a clue what it's going to cost :thumbsup:

Main monitor: Dell 2007WFP (This is the sweetest thing I've ever used) 20" widescreen
Second monitor: (usually holding winamp and notes) is some MAG Innovision 17" that I got on black friday a few years ago.

It's really neat because the 20" widescreen is the exact same height as the 17" 4:3.

Sadly, a 17" CRT. I would like, at a minimum, a 20" Flat Panel monitor which is much easier on my eyes and uses less juice as well.

15" Flat-panel monitor. I used to have a 17" flat panel, but there was a defect in it that made it turn on and off at random. I got my current 15" one for free from a woman I babysat for. It actually works properly!!!! :flowers: Someday, I want a bigger, widescreen one, but that will have to wait until after college...way after college. :thumbsup:

I have a Tech friend that hooks up his business tablet note book to a 30"+ screen at his home after family hours.
He watches some sports or news and cleans up some business items also. He has that picture-in-picture thingie.
I'm not sure how that all works though. I get Koanfused watching such.
