Don't you just love getting a tax return - here's what we spent part of ours on, a new Samsung 2243BWX LCD monitor. There was nothing actually wrong with the old one, a Dell 17" which must now be close to 8 years old but we just felt like spoiling ourselves (and our deteriorating eyesight !). The Handbrake will gladly tell you I've been agonising about this for a few months and finally weakened on Saturday.
Nothing's simple though is it ? Since I plugged it in I've been struggling with getting the resolution correct and it would appear that our Intel graphics card can't emulate the optimum recommended 1600 x 1050 resolution of the screen which is doing odd things to some of the fonts although the xtra size easily compensates for that. I'll have to wrestle with that problem a bit longer unless someone can suggest an easy fix. We're currently using a 1450 x 1050 setting, none of the available options letting us get close to the ideal.
