    So i wass just sitting in my room and i thought of how cool it would be if i could mount that monitor on my wall and lay down to work. This leads me to this thread. Is it possible to mount it? I plan to purchase one next time there is a real big sale on them again. Thanks in advance.

    Yes, it's compatible with a 100mm VESA wall mount. :)

    Indeed it is. From the 2005FPW page on Dell's site:

    The VESA thing's what you're looking for. You should be able to buy any VESA-compliant mounting arm and hook it to the back of the display, replacing the stand that comes with it.

    Sorry, my sick perverted mind couldn't stop me laughing when I saw the title of this thread.

    I'm also planning on picking one up next time there's a good deal. Where do you look to find the sale?

    I usually check http://www.techbargains.com/, is there anything better?

    Dealnews.com is another good one... but they have a lot of overlap. I find that Techbargains reports a lot of things that are sort of the usual... like they will have fifty entries for free cellphones on Amazon, and you have to wade through them. :rolleyes: But if you keyword search, they're pretty equivalent....

    I'm kind of waiting on Dell deals too...I kind of have a jonesing for an x50v to use just as a super-lazy, too-lazy-to-sit-up-straight wireless browsing device. :D

    No sorting required. Use this url for Dell specific coupons on Techbargains.
