    If you have the $$$ go for the dual 20" LCDs!

    Two 20's, especially if you do a lot of graphics work. So nice to put all the toolbars and palletes out of the way.

    Isn't 2 20" cheaper than 1 24"
    Lots of posts about the Dell FPW 2005 for less than 450..
    You'd be lucky to get the FPW2405 for less than 1000..

    Pixel wise...
    3360*1050 for 900
    vs
    1900*1200 for 1000

    You can also rotate these guys I think.. How about 2100*1680?

    Then again.. Is desk space a consideration??

    desk space is not a consideration. i would purchase the 2 20's right now, but dell doesnt have any deals going on them at the moment.

    My vote goes for two 20 inchers, having said that two 30 inchers would be nice has anyone actually got this including a picture i want it i want it.

    evil - its called slickdeals.net!!!

    Twice this week they've had the 20 inchers for $397. Keep an eye out, I say you can't go longer than 2-3 weeks and they're on sale.

    Thanks me later! ;)
