I came across this new computer system while browsing and I couldn't believe my eyes! Damn! Take a look at the monitors, they will blow you away!
The onlydownside is the price, huge! smileys/smiley3.gif

My future monitor: http://www.go-l.com/monitors/grand_canyon/features/index.htm (http://www.go-l.com/monitors/grand_canyon/features/index.htm)
Has anyone else seen anything that can compare to this? Amazing!

I have seen day trader multi-monitor configurations in two rows of three. This looks great, however my biggest problem is I spen my entire life on the web or coding pages. Typical web pages are portrait in shape so I cannot understand the need for landscape monitors. I remember MAC came out witha swing monitor that you could rotate 90 degrees and the image would not. So you could change your monitor from portrait to landscape with a simple turn. Great concept plagued with problems. Same with Letterbox TV (fitting a wide screen movie onto a tv screen) When you see these wide screen movies, the tops of the heads are always cut off. Doesn't make sense to me. Then again. alot of things don't smileys/smiley8.gif

Looks like they're trying to make a Mac-looking PC. Even the
site very closely follows the apple site.

The downsides are more than just the price.

redex, you think just like my mom. She is totally against widescreen, even after trying to explain it to her until I am blue in the face.
In letterbox format, the film isn't being cropped, black bars are added above and below to change it to 4:3 aspect ratio (normal television). In other words, nothing is being cut from the top or bottom of the film.
She doesn't understand that films are shot in widescreen (2.35:1) and then have to be cropped to fit a normal TV. As a result, ~43% of the original film is lost!
