I *really* like my SGI 1600SW. For some bizzare reason, it was
discontinued in favor of another 17 inch LCD, but one with a lower
resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio. I don't understand. Maybe more people
than just a few of my friends were complaining that the pixels are too
small at 110dpi, but I complain that 75dpi is too large.
I imagine it should be possible to find a 1600SW, but I will not give up
mine. It is too wonderful for looking at lots of code, and video editing,
and web browsing, and . . .
