    I only use the computer to check email and chat. I don't play video games. Should I save money and get a 15in or go ahead and get a 17in? People who have LCD's what do you recommend? The reason Im asking this is because my friend has a 15in and I noticed the text is extremely small....so Im thinking a 17in would be better for me

    i guess it all depends how close its gonna be to you mines a 17 inch but the only reason i spent the extra cash is cause its all the way on the back of my desk. If its gonna be right in your face bigger isnt gonna help much, not that my 17 inch is a big imporvment over a 15

    As LCD screens get bigger, the resolution gets higher... so the image doesn't get bigger - just more dot space to make a larger desktop.

    15" LCD will give you 1024x768 which is fine more most people. And cheap for $250~300. They are about the size of a 17" CRT.

    Recommend: Samsung/ NEC / Mitsubishi
