   Well, I have a chronic lack of space, so the monitors wind up
getting shared around between numerous machines, sometimes at random
points in time.  I've got one I sit behind all the time, one that
gets used _occasionally_, and a "cold spare".  Any of them can be
used on almost any of my systems, *and* look decent in the process.

   If LCDs running outside their native resolution look like junk,
then I think I'll pass -- even with the space/weight/power savings.
