    I can tell you that anything even worth owning is going to run around $200.00 to $250.00 for a 17" LCD monitor and from the price of that BenQ upwards to $350.00 dollars for a 19".I have a friend who bought a 19" lcd at walmart,IC Power brand and it looked so bad I had him take it back and i ordered him a decent one.

    kokoronohaik, if you shop the same sites, you'll find new laptops in the $500-600 range, a much better idea than a "refurbished" model. That's a term for someone else had a problem, and now you have it. :D A new laptop comes with a better warranty, a new battery, CD-RW or DVD-RW drive, larger hard disk, more memory, etc.

    Make a point of sending them in :D Save copies of everything you mail.

    Also, a quick question, you aren't confusing 'FLAT SCREEN' with 'LCD SCREEN' ?
