I have the latter which fits perfectly on my desk. I'm thinking of getting a new 19.5" monitor that's more modern but I am wondering how much bigger it is or if it is the same because it is widescreen.

Because the bezel widths may not be the same, look up the specs and check for overall size dimensions. Not the 'viewable' size. That will tell you how much space the larger monitor will take.

The widescreen units usually are the same height as the 17 inch units, just an inch or two wider.

Thank you. Good to know! :)
