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 . . .
