Don't worry by the time you hit 45, they will look wonderful. :-)

The technology to wait foris the up and coming OLED (Organic LED). A
conductive matrix is printed on any non conductive surface and then the
dots are added. The manufacturing process is similar to printing with an
inkjet printer.

Although current TFT technology requires relativly large spaces between the
pixels, OLED can easily produce a resolution of 300 pixels per inch. In
quantity a 3.5" 800x600 screen will sell for about $5. This means sub $100
monitors with very high resolutions by today's standards.

The disadvantage is the red and green leds loose half their intensity in
about 10,00 hours, the blue about 3,000. This means that they will
probably have user replaceable screens.
