Understand that, just make sure that you like the sound of the speakers first, some of those built in ones are very ordinary.

There was an HP 23" for $20 more but it had a lower contrast ratio. Everything else was pretty much the same except the Gateway has built in speakers, which will give me surround sound capabilities with my current speakers.

I like to listen to tunes while lost in Photoshop/Bridge.

:D

Gateway finally replaced mine after I reported them to the BBB.
Of course in the meantime Hubby had bought me a new HP LCD.
I use it because he bought it but I really like the Gateway better picture and it just sits in the corner connected to my my olde eMachine unused most of the time.

What make/model, Red?

Over here, you'd not pick up a half decent one for that money. (IMHO)

I've got a three here, and I still agree with Kat...

The best one is the Tosh lappy screen, and even then that ain't all that. My Viewsonic is pretty poor by any comparison, the Illamya (sp) comes in slightly better, but nowhere near as good it's reviews were suggesting when it was launched, and my nippers 15" Relysis (sp) comes somewhere between the Viewsonic and the Illamya...

Samsung were rated pretty highly last I saw, (a while ago) but my old baccy supplier had one, and I wasn't overly impressed with that one either, despite it supposedly being HD...

It depends on what you're using the monitor for, but bear in mind that improvements are taking place all the time.

As an added bonus, prices continue to fall.

I've yet to see a flattie that has a high enough refresh-rate, for me.

Have a look here Redwolf.

Whatever you go for it might be outdated.

The teen has a flat screen and enjoys using it for looking her photography but she's not a professional RW.

My CRT is on its last legs. I have to bite the bullet and get a new monitor in the very near future.

What is going to be the biggest obstacles in adjusting to a flat screen for me as a photographer?

Keep in mind I have a Huey on my rig that calibrates the monitor for working on photos.

I've used my step-daughter's computer which has a flat screen and kind of like it.

Thoughts from those photogs and graphics types who have gone before, please.
