    I've presently got a 19" widescreen LCD monitor, max res 1440x900... it's great and all, served me well for quite some time. Got a bitchin' cyber monday deal on a 24" monitor though that I will be replacing it with once it arrives... My dilemma is that I don't know what to do with the old one. Any cool suggestions as to what to do with the perfectly good and awesomely reliable 19"?

    Different inches and likely different resolutions. The old monitor would only be usefull for displaying stuff like internet browsers, IM clients, etc, while the other one would be used for gaming/movies. In that scenario, I'd say that's the best idea too.

    You say that now, but when monitors inevitably revolt and enslave the human race, I think your opinion will change. :teach:

    I had considered dual monitors... never messed with that though, not sure how to set it up. Also, I've heard the different sizes pose a problem for windows. How is it controlled so that one monitor displays only certain things? Very interested in this! Sorry for my noobishness haha.

    Sell it for all it's worth and put the money towards something else; either that, or send it to me.

    Actually, scratch the first option.

    Lol, most definitely. You know the terminators? Just advanced monitors.
