If you have $225 to spend.  ;)

I'd LOVE to replace my 90D10 with an equivalent flat panel ... sharp
edge-to-edge since it'd be running at native resolution 100% of the
time, no color convergence issues, less weight, less bulk, less heat,
less power draw ... but I can't afford to replace it right now.  I'll be
keeping the Sun FD on my GameOS machine until it dies or a better
display technology than LCD comes along, because it gets run at a
variety of different resolutions, and my experience is LCDs running at
other than native resolution look like ass (and not in the good way).
