    Suddenly

    Apple's 20" LCD looks like a real bargain.

    1600x1200 is nice

    1600x1200 native resolution is very nice for people with low vision as it syncs down to 800x600 with no distortion. Unfortunately, standard VGA 640x480 is too small for web surfing as poorly designed websites which don't scale are far too common (1280x960 in an uncommon LCD configuration anyway). The fewer the pixels for a given size, the more built-it magnification. Hardware-base magnification (i.e., a bigger monitor) is expensive, but it has significant advantages over software solutions. I wish the Cinema displays had the option to run at exactly half (one-quarter really) of their native resolution.

    Not News

    I am curious that NEC is making an annoucement about this.

    We’ve had several of the 20" models in stock for almost a month. Maybe just the 21" model is new? I notice that it is not (yet) available in black. Also, why wouldn’t just about anyone pay the $50 extra for one more inch?
