not so hard to find here. they can go for little more than what some
places want for a new 13w3-vga adapter, so sometimes it's actually the
cheapest option. (some people are really happy to have people take
things like old monitors off their hands) i've heard that sun monitors
will also work, but i haven't tried it myself. neither sgi nor sun
make their own monitors, so you have to figure that something out
there will work. for what it's worth, i'm using eizo lcd monitors here.
